The exhibit, Around the World in 70 Maps: Three Centuries of Cartographic Treasures from Children’s Literature, has itself traveled around the world. However, Worlds of Words Center of Global Literacies and Literatures in the University of Arizona College of Education is the first venue in the U.S. to show this imaginative collection from the International Youth Library in Munich, Germany.

While Tucson is the first place in the U.S. to receive this exhibit, Around the World in 70 Maps has been shown in many countries, including Russia, Costa Rica, Greece, Mexico, Norway and Spain. The exhibit includes hands-on activities and can be accessed for in-person and virtual field trips. The collection is free to visit and generally open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays-Fridays. For more information or to schedule a field trip or guided tour, submit an online request.
