MoMath Museum in New York City

MoMath, or the National Museum of Mathematics, is a new museum in Manhattan geared towards 4th to 8th graders. But plenty of younger and older mathematicians are enjoying the exhibits, too. There are puzzles and games and a Wall of Fire (a laser light that will outline you in red if you cross its path), the Human Tree (it turns your image into branches of fractal images which move as you move), and the Math Square (it lights up the shortest path to connect everyone standing on the square).
