The Mary Baker Eddy Library houses various temporary and ongoing exhibits for visitors to enjoy while exploring the primary Library exhibits.
“The Mapparium®: An Inside View”
Located in the anteroom of the Mapparium, this exhibit details some of the changes that the Mapparium and the world has seen since 1935. It features never-before seen letters, documents, and artifacts showcasing the construction, history, and significance of this magnificent architectural and artistic achievement. (Ongoing)
“Sensational Press. Radical Response.”
Located on the Library’s second-floor promenade, this exhibit explores the often tabloid-like press coverage of Mary Baker Eddy’s personal life and the motivations behind her founding The Christian Science Monitor newspaper at age 87. (Ongoing)
This item is also displayed on the wall on the second floor by the Press Gallery exhibit. Representative of the hopefulness and enthusiasm that characterized many of the pre-World War I peace movements in America, the earliest peace flags date back to 1891. The flag on display in the Library is one of two that hung above the speakers’ podium during the 1907 Peace Congress proceedings in New York, presided over by Andrew Carnegie. The flag was given to Mary Baker Eddy in honor of her support of this and other peace movements. (Ongoing)
