  • The library is free to enter and part of the Christian Science Church (NOT Scientology!). Mary Baker Eddy is a really interesting woman - look her up! The Mapparium is also here and is super cool.  more »
  • Besides knowing the story of this woman who fought against the sexism of the time to prove their worth, the library has a magnificent mapparium whose visit is worth the cut of the entrance, which is only $ 4 without discounts.

  • Massachusetts Avenue in the back Bay, is a very convenient location. Highlights the Mapparium is colorful and beautiful and is very impressive. I think this is rare, so it is recommended.

  • It is a short 15 minute guided tour inside the globe. It costs $6. I recommend only if you are passing by.
  • Being inside the world globe is an amazing experience You get to experience a view of the earth in a most unbelievable way We could have spend an entire day looking at it
  • A really worthwhile attraction to see when in Boston. The staff were incredibly welcoming and didn't force their beliefs onto people visiting.
  • Very interesting and fun visit. Half hour tour of this unique world globe. Acoustics inside are also very cool and make for a fun family trip.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
