Museum of the Moon an artwork by Luke Jerram

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Visit the free installation at the Museum from 17 May.

Since 2016 the Moon has been circling the globe, lighting up spaces from Bilbao to Beijing including abbeys and swimming pools.

This six-metre model features meticulously detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, ambient moonlight and an evolving soundscape.

It will be at the Museum in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, accompanied by an exciting programme of events for space enthusiasts of all ages.

Join interactive theatre-makers Coney in Companion: Moon, a free experience where you can join in or observe as multiple art forms combine.
