Bostonians are invited to take a walk through history and explore stories about global progress at the How Do You See the World? experience at the Christian Science Plaza, an expansive, 13-acre space in the heart of Back Bay.

Located in The Christian Science Publishing House, the How Do You See the World? experience features interactive exhibits, that include:
  • The Mapparium™: Step into the iconic, three-story stained glass globe to glimpse our world in 1935 with narration and light, and see things from a different perspective — from the inside of the world looking out.
  • Stories from The Christian Science Monitor: Learn the stories of those who have made a difference in their communities worldwide, including the woman who founded the Christian Science church and the Monitor newspaper, Mary Baker Eddy.
  • Our World: Mapping Progress: Interact with various touchscreens highlighting humanity’s advancements since 1935, and inspirational hope for the future.
  • And more
