If you know absolutely nothing about MoMaths – no, not more maths… here is a brief history quoted by them
“The National Museum of Mathematics began in response to the closing of a small museum of mathematics on Long Island, the Goudreau Museum. A group of interested parties (the “Working Group”) met in August 2008 to explore the creation of a new museum of mathematics — one that would go well beyond the Goudreau in both its scope and methodology. The group quickly discovered that there was no museum of mathematics in the United States, and yet there was incredible demand for hands-on math programming.” Thus, the arrival on Madison Ave of the MoMath.
Even Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons visited MoMath
“…recently played G.H. Hardy in The Man Who Knew Infinity, a new film about Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. Hardy recognized Ramanujan’s brilliance in the early 20th century and mentored Ramanujan as he became a world renowned mathematician while enduring much personal trauma. ”
