The Mapparium®

Few museum exhibits can say they turn the world inside out. And yet that's exactly what happens at the Mapparium, The Mary Baker Eddy Library's most famous sight. Its three-story-high stained-glass globe is emblazoned with a map of the world in 1935, meant to be viewed from the inside. After guests enter the globe through a gangway, glittering LED lights bring its bright, vibrant colors to life during a presentation on the history of ideas and their spread throughout the world. Another bonus: the acoustics of the globe make it a whispering gallery, meaning that visitors standing at either entrance can communicate with each other by speaking in a low voice or burping a message in Morse code.

Customer Reviews

It is very brief, but concise and organized. Fountain while you wait is nice touch. Staff is friendly and helpful even security. Allot enough time to get to and from vehicle.

It is a very interesting exhibit. The stained glass and audio presentation are excellent. The acoustics in the globe are fun and exciting. It could be a little longer. They seem to rush groups in and out.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the map of the world in an audio version
