The Globe Museum
The Globe Museum located in Vienna, Austria is the only one of its kind in the world. Opened in 1956, it is connected to the Austrian National Library. They contain an impressive collection of historic globes, with over 700 on offer. While most of the globes are available for academic research properties, they have 250 terrestrial and celestial globes on display for the public. They specialize in globes made before 1950, although they contain some more recent models as well. This is a place we at Columbus Globes would definitely like to visit if we ever to make it to Vienna! Until then, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorite antique celestial globes from their collection. Without further ado, here are three unforgettable celestial globes that the Globe Museum houses.
