The Mapparium is a huge stained glass globe that you can go inside - and see the World's geopolitical map from 1931-32, when it was built. They advertise the stained glass, but what is striking to me is how much the world has changed in under 100 years; inside this glob you really see the reach of…

Off-the-beaten path but highly recommended! Three-story-tall globe made of stained glass that is viewed from a 30-foot-long bridge through its interior.

A very interesting exhibit of a stained-glass globe that is big enough to enter and play around with the acoustics. Also right next to the Christian Science Plaza with beautiful architecture and fountains.

Art Museum
“One of the city’s most charming attractions is the small but lovely Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Isabella Stewart, a New York socialite, came to Boston in 1860 to marry John Lowell Gardner, one of Boston’s prominent citizens. In short order, Isabella set to building herself a Venetian palazzo to hold her extensive art collection. Just like she was, the collection is eclectic, with masterpieces by Titian (Europa), Giotto (Presentation of Christ in the Temple) and John Singer Sargent (El Jaleo), to name a few. Isabella left strict instructions in her will that the building remain exactly as she left it, so visitors today can almost picture her enjoying the gorgeous gardens in her Venetian courtyard or warming her hands by one of the Renaissance hooded fireplaces.”
