A new exhibit at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center will take you on a whimsical exploration of math.

The exhibit called Geometry Playground opens June 11, 2011 and features games and exhibits to teach children about angles and shapes.

"Exhilarating hands-on exhibits will have you playing a goofy game of hopscotch, climbing a structure of giant multi-sided shapes, crawling through corkscrew tunnels and creating geometric works of art, all while exploring the patterns, angles, arcs and shapes that make up the most visual branch of math," the museum said.

There are 20 separate exhibits to enjoy. The traveling exhibit was created by world-famous Exploratorium in San Francisco, according to museum officials.

The museum is open seven days a week. Museum admission is $10 for adults and $8.75 for seniors and children under 12.
