Event details

Museum of the Moon displays the lunar surface in incredible detail on a seven-metre-wide sphere that is suspended in the air. It is massive, magnificent and mesmerising.


Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram being presented worldwide at a number of arts and cultural venues over the coming years. The artwork is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.

Museum of the Moon has recently been presented at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, toured five cities of India with the British Council and been presented in Aarhus, Denmark, for the European Capital of Culture.


The exhibit uses imagery captured by the NASA spacecraft Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and, at an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the sphere represents five kilometres of the Moon’s surface.
