The Mappariums three-dimensional perspective of the world of 1935 is enhanced by A World of Ideas, an original presentation that features a rich orchestration of words, music, and LED lights to illustrate how ideas have traversed time and geography and changed the world.


The Library is also showing a complementary exhibit, The Mapparium: An Inside View, featuring never before made public letters, documents, and artifacts showcasing the construction, history, and significance of this magnificent architectural and artistic achievement.


Learn more about the history of the Mapparium and its architect, Chester Lindsay Churchill. Explore how the 1935 world map inside the Mapparium, which has never been updated, serves as a remarkable snapshot of both geographic and global history.
