The Mapparium at The Mary Baker Eddy Library, is a masterpiece, by the renowned architect Chester Lindsay Churchill. The Mapparium is a stained glass globe, three-story high, and has a bridge which takes you to the 'center of the world.' This brilliant architectural wonder gives you the illusion of being in the middle or the belly of the whole world. The globe is illuminated from the outside, thereby enabling you to see the contours of the construction from the inside. The Mapparium also holds various sound and light shows to display the changes in the world. A spectacular piece of modern architecture, this one surely merits a visit.
