If you’ve played Starfield for even an hour, you know just how much stuff is in the game. Bethesda has made it its mission to ensure that there is plenty of content to enjoy well beyond the main campaign — or even the side quests, for that matter. A great example of this is the game’s array of collectible snow globes. Lucky for you, we’ve done the heavy lifting to locate each one of them. Let’s go over how to find every snow globe location in Starfield.
Where To Find Every Starfield Snow Globe Location
The in-game snow globes are a fantastic souvenir, though they provide no real utility. Typically found at a real-world location, they are a great callback to life here on Earth! To encounter each one, you must first locate its corresponding book and read its coordinates. Read below to learn the ins and outs of each snow globe collectible’s location in Starfield.
Empire State Building (New York)
This snow globe’s book, titled Our Lost Heritage, can be found in the MAST building in New Atlantis. Take the elevator up to the Central Command and make your way over to the main office. Surprisingly, taking the book will technically count as stealing, so practice caution when doing so.
Reading the book will mark a new point of interest on Earth in the Sol System. This landing spot will take you right to the Empire State Building, where you can find the snow globe hidden at the foot of the tower.
Pyramids of Giza (Cairo)
This may be the most popular snow globe in Starfield, and its corresponding book can be picked up at the bookstore in Akila City. Furthermore, though it is rare, it is possible to find it on the occasional space pirate.
The book in question is fittingly titled The Ancient Civilization of Egypt and unlocks a new landing spot on Earth. After touching down, head to the larger pyramid to find the snow globe a few steps up.
St. Louis Gateway Arch (St. Louis)
Obtaining this snow globe’s book, The Price of Destiny, will admittedly require a bit more nuance than the previous two entries. Firstly, head to Neon and search for a man named Benjamin Bayu. He will almost certainly be in the city’s club, where you will need to pickpocket him to acquire his penthouse key.
The Price of Destiny is sitting atop his desk in his penthouse and will mark a new spot on Earth for you to explore. The landing spot in question will take players to the St. Louis Gateway Arch. Simply head to the foot of the arch to find its snow globe location in Starfield.
US Bank Tower (Los Angeles)
To find Starfield‘s LA-inspired snow globe, you will need to find a book titled Hope Family Tree. As part of the Freestar Rangers questline, you will enter the office of Ron Hope, and the novel is on top of his desk. You can also return to the office later on as part of a quest for Ryujin Industries.
After arriving at the landing spot, look for the snow globe on a rock at the base of the tower; it shouldn’t be too hard to find.
The Shard (London)
This Starfield snow globe location can only be found by locating the book Oliver Twist, available for purchase at the Akila City Bookstore. It can also be found inside your parent’s house.
Sitting on a rock at the base of the Shard, this snow globe may be a bit tricky to locate. Be patient, though — we promise it’s there!
NASA Launch Tower
The NASA-themed snow globe in Starfield actually doesn’t require a book to find it. As part of the main quest, players will be taken to an old NASA launch site. Deep into the facility, there will be a large door in which you will need to restore power to open. Despite being located in such a cluttered area, the snow globe is actually pretty easy to spot. It is on a desk in the corner of the room next to an old ’90s-looking computer.
Interestingly, there is a second snow globe at the NASA Launch Tower. Those talented enough to scale the massive structure will find a mini snow globe replica sitting at the top.
Burj Khalifa (Dubai)
Before heading to the Burj Khalifa, players must obtain a copy of the book Race to the Heavens. The book can be found inside the Siren of the Stars, a massive luxury ship. Gaining access is tricky, as it can only be done via a Crimson Fleet faction quest.
Once inside the ship, search for Room 5 in the living quarters and pick the lock; a copy of the book in question can be found on the desk. After the quest is over, head to the Dubai landing spot on Earth. The Burj Khalifa snow globe will sit on a rock on the far side of the tower.
Shanghai Tower (Shanghai)
To find the Shanghai Tower snow globe’s location in Starfield, players must first find the book Essentials of Modern Macroeconomics. Getting your hands on it is pretty easy. Head over to the planet Porrima II in the Porrima System and dock with the unidentified ship in orbit.
Once inside, head up the elevator until you reach the classroom and search for the book near the whiteboard. Reading the book will mark the Shanghai Tower on Earth. As expected, the snow globe you are looking for will be on a large rock near the building’s base.
Abeno Harukas (Osaka)
The Osaka landmark can be revealed by reading the book Diary of Kyosuke Nagata. However, this book may be tricky to obtain, as it rests bedside of the Crimson Fleet leader. Head to Delgado’s living quarters in The Key and snag the book off his desk.
The Osaka snow globe is resting atop some strangely jagged rocks at the base of the tower.
Hong Kong Commerce Center (Hong Kong)
Finding the Hong Kong Commerce Center snow globe in Starfield is a simple matter of obtaining Maurice Lyon’s Journal. To get it, head over to New Homestead, a civilian outpost on Saturn’s moon Titan. The journal should be resting on a shelf to the right of the staircase leading to the colony’s museum.
The journal will reveal the location of the commerce center on Earth and, consequently, allow you to find its snow globe. The collectible is hard to miss here and should be directly in front of you when you arrive at the tower.
Apollo Moon Landing (Luna)
Unlike the previous snow globes, this one is not on Earth but rather on Luna, Earth’s moon. Thankfully, obtaining its corresponding book is pretty easy this time around. Head over to Matteo’s room in the lodge and search for Sir Livingstone’s Second Journal to pinpoint the location of the Apollo Moon Landing.
Whereas many of the other snow globe locations in Starfield are a headache to find, this one is simply sitting atop the rover.
Opportunity Rover (Mars)
Last but not least, Bethesda pays homage to the little rover that could: Opportunity. The coordinates to the Mars snow globe can be found in the same facility that you found the NASA snow globe. On the exhibit floor, search for the MER Program exhibit and interact with the module by the Mars rover.
Upon doing so, a new landing spot will appear on Mars, allowing you to find the final snow globe in Starfield.
Starfield is available on PC and Xbox Series X|S.
