The winters in Germany are long. The three weeks of school Christmas break are even longer. After our millionth trip to an indoor playground, we needed to mix it up a bit, which brought us to Mathematikum in Giessen.
This little museum is about an hour from our house and features super fun, hands-on activities to help kiddos learn about math and physics.
This table is actually spinning.
Giant bubbles are always a hit.
Puzzles, puzzles and more puzzles.
This is a code breaking game. I kept changing it to English and E kept turning it back to German. Either way we never broke the code. Ha!
We took a break halfway through and had a snack in their café. It was a really small café but had nice choices and the cappuccino was a pi-ece of art. Oh that was bad. Ha!
We finished our day with a few more puzzles.
The top floor of the museum has a section for the littlest Einstein’s (under 3).
Overall, it was a nice quick day trip and something fun to do indoors during the break.
