Yes, there is one such museum, the Museum of Mathematics’ Math Midway. It is a part of the new museum called The Museum of Mathematics in New York City (see above). Mainly for middle-school children, the Math Midway travels the country, offering mathematics through hands-on, visual experience, including a circus- and carnival-like atmosphere that uses such activities as simulated roller coasters and giant blocks—even a square-wheel tricycle—all explained through the use of mathematics.
