I had one of these in my room as a child, and now my son has one too. This is actually our second one, as we recently moved, and I purchased and installed this for his new room. In fact, the people who purchased our old house commented on the uniqueness of the map.

Installation can be a little difficult and lining up the text and lat/long lines can be challenging. To further add to the challenge, each panel overlaps by about 1/2" or so. Having perfectly cut panels that butt up against each other would have made installation easier. Installation is definitely a 2 person job (thanks Dad!) and requires patience.

Overall, a great product that is a conversation starter, looks great in a room, and promotes a greater awareness and understanding of the world.

Wall mural is beautiful. We bought it for our son's nursery. Our only complaint is that it's a lot harder to hang than we anticipated. We tried wall paper paste, but that stretched out the panels. We ended up using double sided mounting tape. We would recommend this product to others, just know it is a challenge to hang.

      Comments about World Political Mural Map:

      I purchased this several years ago for my condo. Pins were put into it for travel with my wife, travel alone and travel with others, A great conversation piece, It was installed by others using the recommended paste. It went together well.

      I use it to find place names in crossword puzzles, and to trace travel when I am reading sea stories and spy stories.

      I have just moved to a house and will soon be ordering a new one.

          I was very disappointed with the quality of the map. Printing on the panels did not match each other. Was very difficult to install and it was impossible to make the lines and names on the map to be aligned.

                    In a corporate aviation setting this map was a favorite and an attention-getter. Everyone would walk straight to the wall where it was. A delivery driver once walked over the to far right lower side and as he was looking, I asked, "Where are you going?" He replied, "No, it's where I am from. I'm finding Figi!" Now am working in an international corporate environment, and missed it, so I recently purchased another. We all love it here!

                      Have already spent hours looking at where I have been and plotting where I would like to travel. The size is perfect for most hallwall walls. Just wish it came with some type of adhesive to put the three map pieces together.

                        We display this map prominently in our living room where we use flag pins with numbers to mark locales we've read about or heard about and hope to visit one day. Next to the map, we have a correlating list of the places we've pinned along with brief descriptions. This map puts smiles on our faces!
