Museum of the Moon: Life Science Centre
Life is bringing the Moon to the Toon! Museum of the Moon will shine from 2 February until 6th May 2019 at Life Science Centre.
Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram, which has been seen by millions of people throughout the world. It has been exhibited at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, at five cities in India and in Aarhus in Denmark for the European Capital of Culture.
The seven-metre-wide sphere, which will be suspended in the air, allows visitors to explore the Moon’s surface in incredible detail. The artwork fuses imagery captured by the NASA spacecraft Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter with a surround sound composition, created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones.
Life is also offering visitors the opportunity to book a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience by Museum of the Moon on the night of the Supermoon on 21 March. At the Supermoon Supper*, swing singer Paul Skerritt will add to the romantic atmosphere with Moon-inspired music for an evening to remember.
Museum of the Moon is included with admission to Life Science Centre**. Visitors can also find out more about the Moon in the planetarium show Moonstruck, explore the world of sci-fi in the exhibition Alien Invasion and be entertained with the new show Kitchen Science in the Science Theatre.
*Not included with Life Science Centre admission.
**Discounted tickets to only visit Museum of the Moon after 4.00pm are available and can be purchased online in advance here.
