Good place for mathematicians and friends. Also for parents with kids to show that mathematics is not so hard to learn.

It's really nice museum for adults and kids. It's really a plus, that you can experience the museum, especially for the kids. We will go again soon.

Mathematikum has become in a relatively short time one of Gießen's "must-sees", especially for families with children. There's a bit of something for everyone and adults will also find themselves surprisingly fascinated and amused here.

This place is amazing eventhough situated in a tiny town of giessen. Small place yet lots of stuff arranged neatly and will keep young children occupied for good couple of hours. And they wouldn't want to leave.

An excellent place to visit especially on a rainy day when you need something to do with children. Many hands on exhibits explore aspects of math and science.
