I've read an article about a quite interesting globe.
In London, on 19th Century there was a full representative of the Earth, including all the land masses, the sea, mountains, rivers, all interior surface built to scale.
The globe was 18 m in diameter.
The interesting part was public need to go INSIDE the globe to view the surface of earth. The globe was hollow and contained a staircase and elevated platforms to climb.
Unfortunately, it was taken down ten years later.

Isn't it a brilliant thing to built again?
