MiMa museum added a math section due to the neighboring Institute of Mathematical Research of Oberwolfach (MFO). That section opened as a permanent showcase of the successful exhibition IMAGINARY - Through the eyes of mathematics, but it also included other material. Exhibits consist of 3 hands-on, a gallery with 24 images, 5 touchscreens with over 35 apps and videos, and a glass case with 39 small sculptures.
