Arithmeum - Review

Bonn’s fascination with unique collection of items is represented magnificently by the Arithmeum. It is a mathematics museum owned by the Research Institute for Discrete Mathematics and managed by the University of Bonn. It convincingly portrays the beauty of science and mathematics. One can expect to find immense joy exploring the diverse facets of architecture fused with design, numbers and geometry.

Founded by Bernhard Korte, the Arithmeum holds a private collection of ancient calculating machines and instruments. The four-level building is concealed in a steel-glass facade. Each floor is designedin a way that the top floor contains the most ancient calculators with lower floors bringing the contemporary machines. Built around the theme of ‘"transparency of science", the building exhibits many interesting items like VLSI logic chips, Russian Abacus, Chinese Counting beads and Mathematical puzzles.

The star attraction is the musical concert organized inside the museum amidst a serene ambience. The different sections in the museum displays include:

  • History books on arithmetic principles from the 17th century
  • Cogwheel mechanisms in mechanical calculators
  • Interaction between science and art

TheArithmeum is a ‘fun-fair’ for math prodigies!

Arithmeum, Bonn Reviews

  • This is a very fun and beautiful museum. It displays a wide range of tools and machines that where used for various mathematical calculations. With some of the machines you can even interact with. On walls you can also find a modern art collection. The museum is wheelchair accessible with a lift and automatic doors. Lockers are available for free and the entrance fee is very low. The staff is also very friendly and helpful.

  • Lots of things to know. Massive collections of things. Worth to Visit this museum

  • Really fun, interactive, informative. Fun for children, and fun for researchers as well.

  • Very good collection of historical calculating devices. I would recommend that there should be more arithmetic activities for children.

  • A terrific collection of mechanical computing equipment. Plan on spending half a day, since there is so much to see and learn.
