Welcome at MatheMuseumTirol

The  in Stams/Tyrol/Austria  is a unique museum made by school students who planned, designed and prepared all interactive exhibits. The museum is dedicated to people of all ages and coordinated by students, teachers and parents. Guided tours and special math days are organized on a regular basis.

Pestallozi´s motto was "Learning by head, hand and heart". In the museum the order is changed, which is expressed by hands-on experiences. The interdisciplinary project started with the development and production of exhibits for a mathematical museum. The MatheMuseum, located in  Stams/Tyrol, is created by students for children and adults alike. The project is designed interdisciplinarily: In addition to mathematics, computer science, arts , business education, music, physics and history, all subjects are invited to jointly develop and present exhibits with the students. The idea of tactile learning is already very old, even Confucius once said: "Tell me - I'll forget it; explain it to me - I may remember; let me do it - I'll understand".
