In the U.S., lives a woman who is not much exaggeration, can call himself a “mistress of the worlds.” It is in the state of Virginia, there is the first and only private museum in America globes. There you can learn not only geography, but also history.

Every day to keep the whole world in the palm for Kim Sorensen – has long been a usual thing. To repair, restore and, most importantly, she began to collect globes twenty years ago. Hobby so carried away that soon turned into a profession, and for home collection had to look for exhibition space. And appeared in America first and only private museum, which without exaggeration can be called “global.”

“Each globe for me – it’s a time machine. Look at him and you will know at what level it was then the public consciousness as the world was investigated and how technologies have been developed, it is perfectly clear on how to make a globe,” – says the hostess globes.

Three-dimensional models of the planet accompanied mankind for more than two thousand years. And, of course, every age has changed the globe, its uniqueness is that, as in maps, geography and politics are inseparable here, and many human complexes strangely leave their mark on the surface even and artificial land.

Here models of all sizes and modifications. Earliest dated mid XVIII century, although the most interesting – and the World War superpower confrontation.

How can the world just one year? Example before your eyes: Globe in 1932. Under the terms of the Treaty of Versailles after World War I, Germany lost all its overseas territories. Globe 1933, Hitler already in power. It cancels the previous decision and makes print maps that are clearly visible German colonies in the south-western and eastern Africa.

Since the beginning of the Second World Americans have ceased to produce globes. From 1939 to 1945, each customer receives a ticket, which guaranteed him a new globe, but only at the end of the war, when the winner will be known and, more importantly, to determine the boundaries of the new world order.

Fighting for space exploration between the Soviet Union and America has spawned a series of interesting globes. After launching satellites orbiting their figures became specially inserted in the model.

One of the copies could come only in rainy London. Globe-folding umbrella for British schools of the late XIX century. Fully disclose its not worth it, and then land just burst.

Search for rare specimens for the collection thanks to the Internet becomes easier to recognize in the museum, but even virtual possibilities of the web will never replace the charm of the globe and will not allow the world to embrace their own hands.
