The best thing we did in Boston was finding this little gem of a place that has the most extraordinary glass globe with incredible acoustics and you walk INSIDE it! It is the world in 1936 and aside from being a classic work of art, it is really interesting to see the world as it was. Stunning and affordable and well worth it.

Really fun to see the world as it was in the 1930s. Admissions a bit stiff but near MFA and worth a visit while in the area.

This is part of the home of Christain Science complex, which is all worth a visit. The Mapparium is just brilliant - do not miss it. We also took a tour of the big Church with its amazing organ - 11000 pipes!

Mapparium is amazing would highly recommend. In the same complex they also offer free tours of the church and building which is also worth a look.

For a few $ this is a great trip to see the magnificent world made of glass representing all the countries in the 1930s. It has a wonderful acoustic as the globe is huge and beautifully lit. A unique 20 min visit is worth it. It is located in the Christian Science publishing building near to the main Church complex. This building also houses a huge archive and reference library featuring the life and works of Mary Baker Eddy the founder of Christian Science. It is a really unique feature!
