The Museum of Mathemathics, to open in 2012, has received a $2 million donation from Google.

The Museum of Mathematics started due to the closing of a small museum of mathematics on Long Island, the Goudreau Museum. The Goudreau unfortunately ran out of funds and the entire collection housed in the museum was unfortunately discarded. A group of interested parties known as the “Working Group” made it a goal to create a new museum of mathematics. This group, led by Glen Whitney, an ex-hedge fund employee, discovered that the United States did not have its own math museum and thus started the project of creating the MoMath.

There's a nice discussion of a generalization of the Birthday problem at Alasdair's Musings.
