And the top floor is the room of globes and armillary spheres…MicroMiniatureMuseumOfNaturalHistory-GlobeRoom

I was inspired to make this room based on a visit 20 years ago to the Museum of the History of Science (now the Galileo Museum) in Florence, Italy.  Their room of globes and spheres is astounding!
