MiMa, Museum for Minerals and Mathematics Oberwolfach
We invite you to have 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.

Support
MiMa is a project by the municipality of Oberwolfach, the Verein der Freunde von Mineralien und Bergbau Oberwolfach e.V. and the Mathematisches Forschungsinstituts Oberwolfach. It was made possible through funding by the state of Baden Württemberg / Regierungspräsidium Freiburg, tourism support and the Federal Ministry of Education and Science.

The project could be implemented only with the constant help and support of the following sponsors and partners. Thank you!
