Tips for your visit:
- Admission is only $6. Guided tours are 20 minutes and also include a multimedia presentation.
- Whisper Away. Go with a partner and test the Mapparium's acoustics. Occupants can communicate with each other by standing at opposite ends of the room and whispering. The acoustics will carry your conversation - privately - across the room. Stand in the center,whisper, and hear yourself speak in surround sound.
- Learn More About Mary Baker Eddy. While I do not follow the beliefs of Christian Science, I did find the history of Mary Baker Eddy's life, the philosophy's founder, very interesting. The self-guided Quest Tour on the second floor of the library will offer you a great introduction.
