Mapparium TM globe + Our World: Mapping Progress

The three-story Mapparium globe—one of Boston's most well known landmarks—shows the world at one moment in time—1935. A short narration lets you consider the world before World War II from an entirely different perspective—from the inside of the world looking out. (Will require a timed ticket and paid admission – adults $6, youth 0-17 free)

Leaving this magnificent space, you encounter “Our World: Mapping Progress,” an exhibit which highlights humanity’s advancement since 1935 and inspires hope for the future. “Points of Progress” invites you to explore a rolling record of significant events in human rights, scientific breakthroughs, exploration, and other fields through the post-war decades.

For profiles of the people around the world making a difference in their communities, eight sets of interactive stories come from the pages of The Christian Science Monitor, a Pulitzer Prize-winning, international newspaper headquartered here and publishing daily and weekly editions since 1908. The Monitor was founded by Mary Baker Eddy with the object to “injure no man, but to bless all mankind.”
