Visited on a Sunday afternoon curious about the Mapparium . We arrived before the 1.40 presentation and were ushered in to join the group. The Mapparium is one piece of this library and as a former geography teacher, I wish we had one in our...More
We went just for the mapparium and it was really cool! The guide talked to us about the way sound travels in there which was interesting and there was a basic light and sound show. I think a donation would be better than a charge...More
Went for just the Mapparium (using the GoBoston card) and it was a very interesting and unique experience. Definitely recommend it and it didn’t take too long at all. Fit it into an already packed day.
We enjoyed our short visit here. The staff were very friendly and eager to assist with questions. We took the free tour of the church that is adjacent to the library building. It's a spectacular facility.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
