The MiMa, museum for minerals and mathematics in Oberwolfach, invites you to take a look at the wonderful world of minerals and mathematics in a way you have perhaps never done before. The MiMa museum does not only host the one-of-a-kind minerals of the Black Forest region or provides insights into mathematical theories, it especially presents the connection between minerals and mathematics: interactive installations let you understand symmetry and crystallography in a playful way.

The maths section of MiMa hosts interactive exhibits of IMAGINARY as for instance SURFER, jReality, Morenaments and a special Cinderella version, as well as a picture gallery. A focus is put on symmetry and cristallography. The exhibits allow visitors to get insights into modern mathematics. Its fascinating geometrical figures and programmes explain various topics of symmetry, algebraic geometry, differential geometry and crystals.

Guided tours for schools and groups can be organized also out of opening hours.
