The Mapparium

Our first tourist stop in Boston was to stop by the Mapparium (at the Mary Baker Eddy Library). The building was absolutely beautiful!! I would love to study here!



  

We weren’t allowed to take pictures of the Mapparium but it was VERY neat inside. It’s a pretty unique thing to see but you do have to pay admission to walk through! Basically the room was a giant globe and you could walk through it. It’s based on a 1930s map of the world. Since it’s a giant sphere, you can also try out different sound effects like whispering a conversation with your friend across the room!
