The Museum was founded in 2013 to develop a programme  of cultural work about mathematics and information science and technology. At present two interactive permanent exhibitions are available:

  • The history of the personal computer.On display are some computers made from 1966 to the present day, running regularly to the delight of visitors. Children and their teachers can actually use them, as many of the exhibits are hands-on, and realize how mass technology has progressed rapidly up to now. In fact, today, smart phones and tablets are usually used also by the common people.
  • Pythagoras and his theorem. Visiting the exhibition, children can play with some jigsaw puzzles to discover the  many different uses of the Pythagoras’ theorem. They can also get close to the well-known mathematician and get to grips with a number of concepts linked to his theorem.
