Finding signs of progress in the news can often seem difficult. But when we look for it, our world is full of examples of hope, resilience, joy, gratitude, compassion, generosity, courage, and forgiveness. The How Do You See the World? Experience with the Mapparium™ globe spotlights positive change and the inspired actions of everyday people in countries and cultures globally — and encourages you to think about the impact you have on this world.

Find a montage of photos from the pages of The Christian Science Monitor as soon as you enter the Christian Science Publishing House. This neoclassical building, constructed in 1934, once housed printing and bindery equipment to produce the Monitor newspaper and other periodicals.

You can see the world from a new perspective when you step inside the Mapparium globe. You'll walk across a bridge through the three-story, stained-glass globe, enhanced with music, audio narration, and a light show. Showing the world at one moment in time – 1935, the globe lets you consider the world before World War II from an entirely different perspective. 

The Mary Baker Eddy Library and surrounding Christian Science Plaza

Look deeper into humanity’s advancement since 1935 with stories from The Christian Science Monitor that illustrate humanity’s progress and share stories about individuals who have made a positive impact in their global communities.

You can also learn about the woman who founded The Christian Science Monitor and the Christian Science church — Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910). Eddy was one of the most influential women of her day, overcoming great adversity. Explore her lifelong love of the Bible and its ongoing relevance and application to today’s universal questions.

Each exhibit space in the How Do You See the World? experience comes alive with custom-composed musical scores, multimedia tables, interactive projection-mapped displays, historical artifacts, and more.

Since its opening in 2022, the Mary Baker Eddy Library has offered a place to explore the life, ideas and achievements of the pioneer in religion whose works have touched the fields of education, publishing and business. The Library houses a vast collection of original materials that document her life and the church that she founded. Samples are available to explore in a virtual exhibit on the first floor and you can also visit the Research Room on the fourth floor to learn more about the collection. 

Once you're done with your visit, you can take a look at the worldwide home of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879. Take a free guided tour to see the original 1894 church building, home to one of the world’s largest pipe organs (with 13,000 pipes!). Alternatively, opt for a self-guided tour of the 13.5-acre Christian Science Plaza, complete with the Reflecting Pool, Children’s Fountain, and modernist architecture.
