    I visited just for the Mapparium, a three-story globe showing the world from 1935. The acoustics are amazing (you can whisper from one side and it’s heard as a shout on the other side), the light and sound presentation is interesting and it’s just stunning to be inside the globe. Do show up on the 20 minute mark of each hour as that’s when tours run and they really aren’t any longer than 15 minutes. The gift shop is really cute and reasonably priced.Note: Photography isn’t allowed in the Mapparium and they’re serious about it, unfortunately. What I wouldn’t do for a photo in there!

    A good destination for a couple hours in the afternoon. The Mapparium is clearly the highlight of the experience, followed by the Hall of Ideas, and lastly by the upstairs exhibits. The one-room tour through the Mapparium only lasts a few minutes, but is still impressive.

    The Hall of Ideas has a lovely fountain, with projections of poignant quotes on several walls. Next, take the 20-minute tour of the Mapparium — a world-famous, three-story, painted-glass globe from 1935 — the impressive presentation illustrates how ideas have traversed time/geography. Acoustics inside of the Globe give a perception of full surround-sound; whispering across one side of the bridge to a friend on the other would be heard near-perfectly. Finish the visit in the Quest Gallery upstairs.

    terrible. especially that they preach to you. sounds more like a cult, not a Christian church.
