NEW YORK — The floors, the staircases, and even the bathrooms are imbued with math at the new National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath), set to open here Saturday (Dec. 15).

The country's first museum dedicated to math, the two-floor facility is aimed at the whole family, and will open to the public just north of Madison Square Park at 11 E. 26th St. The museum features more than 30 exhibits, every one interactive and colorful, that communicate the many ways math plays a role in our world and our everyday lives.
