Mathematikum

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.

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.
