There’s only one place in the world to be surrounded by dozens of elaborate glass panels depicting the political geography of the world as it appeared in 1935. Yes, it’s here at the Christian Science Monitor’s Mapparium, which offers a kaleidoscope of color as you walk along a suspended bridge learning about the creative representation. For a bit of fun, stay at one end of the bridge to listen to your companion at the other end. The acoustics are just that good here.
