Collegium Maius, Libraria

The original Jagiellonian Globe, an armillary sphere with a clockwork mechanism and the oldest preserved globe on which appears the word "America," made in 1510 is in this room. The university museum holds a large collection of historic scientific instruments, particularly astronomical devices.
