The Mapparium, Boston

4.1
#11 of 37 in Museums in Boston
Experience the globe, frozen in time, through a stained-glass world map built in a concave shape around you at The Mapparium. Located in the Mary Baker Eddy Library, this exhibit showcases the world map during 1935 and gives you an understanding of geography and history at that time. Don't miss the whispering gallery--the globe's acoustics enable you to converse with someone on the other side of the bridge as if they were right next to you.
