Mathematics Museum

Figures

Maths is not just a science but also an art and helpful in constructing artistic work, as is evidenced by Johann Sebastian Bach. In the MuseumsQuartier of Vienna's seventh district, mathematicians have combined culture with science in the form of a maths museum or math.space project. All sorts of puzzles, numbers, and figure combinations appear and children as well as adults can just play around with the objects. Concepts are also introduced and dimensions visually explained, length, width, height and length all no longer mysteries for a few boffins. Maths so say the scientists can really be a world language of communication. In the museum there are experts on hand to explain the connections between the exhibits and how everything works. Older children can learn about maths in history and the famous Greeks and Pythagoras and Archimedes as well as the achievements of other famous mathematicians. The project is supported by the City of Vienna.

The MuseumsQuartier (MQ) is one of the largest cultural complexes in the world and is in a wonderfully restored former imperial building with baroque fašade not far from the centre of the city.
