CHRISTIAN SCIENCE
 Topped by a heptagonal pyramid of glass, the main building of the pavilion offers colorful and graphic three-dimensional exhibits that explain Christian Science. The structure, surrounded by 14 lighted fountains, is shaped like a seven-pointed star and rises from a pool of water 100 feet in diameter. A photographic display in the first point of the star sets a thoughtful mood that is carried out in other exhibits, which range from explanations in the Bible regarding God and man to the relevance of religion in the nuclear age. In one section, visitors can listen to verified accounts of healings through Christian Science told by the people who had the experiences. Near the main building is a second, smaller building, which houses a reading room accommodating 25 people; behind both structures is a park with chairs for relaxation and contemplation. Visitors to the pavilion can get on-the-spot world news reports, supplied by correspondents of the Christian Science Monitor, by pressing a button.
* Admission: free.
