Museum of the moon

Museum of the Moon is a huge touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landings. The artwork itself lands in London at the Natural History Museum, just around the corner from Nell Gwynn House, on 17th May and will be there until September with entrance free to visitors.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

Various events will take place in each venue and, in London, these include yoga and performances by DJ Yoda and the House Gospel Choir Sound system amongst others.

The Museum of the Moon installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.
