Museum of the Moon at Life Science Centre

About

Get upclose to the Moon at Life Science Centre. Created by UK artist Luke Jerram, 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.

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.

Don't miss a series of complementary events that run alongside the Museum of the Moon exhibit.
