Ever wonder what it might be like to look at a globe from the inside?  The Spellman Museum of stamps & Postal History at Regis College in Weston offers you the chance on Monday, November 12 from 10:00 to 12:00


Earthview, a twenty-foot high (that’s two stories) inflated globe will be open for children and adults to step inside and learn fascinating facts about geography.  The Globe is sponsored by the Massachusetts Global Awareness Project at Bridgewater State and is part of the Museum’s celebration of National Geography Awareness Week


Directors of the Bridgewater program, Dr. Vernon Domingo and Dr. James Hayes-Bohanan, will make presentations inside the Globe throughout the morning. Both professors take this Globe to schools across the state and recently even set it up on the main hall of the Massachusetts State House.


Visits inside the Globe will take place every 15 minutes (10:00, 10:15, 10:30, etc) and families should try to make a reservation (although not mandatory) by emailing to info@spellman.org


While children are waiting they will have the opportunity to hunt through boxes of worldwide stamps and create their own stamp atlas to take home for free


Visitors are asked to park free at the Museum and take the short walk to the Field House on campus.


Admission is $3 per child with no cost to adults.  More information is available at www.spellman.org or by calling 617-784-5838.
