The Mirror Maze

In the centerpiece of the exhibit, the mirror maze, you'll become immersed in a pattern of triangles that repeat in a dizzying array of mirrors.

A Sea of Triangles

The mirror maze itself is a pattern, combining several characteristics of geometric patterns: repetition, symmetry and tessellation using repeated equilateral triangles. These triangles fit together without any gaps or overlaps, creating a tessellation. Mirrored surfaces all around reflect the pattern so that it repeats and appears infinite.

The Maze Will Amaze

Several dead ends are scattered throughout the maze. At some of these points, you’ll discover additional intriguing facts and have to solve some mathematical puzzles. Try finding the small hidden room nestled within the maze, to unlock bonus experiences and artifacts. Not everyone will find this mystery room, so navigate carefully!
