Join me at The Moon: A Voyage Through Time, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing The Moon

Interactive devices, displays, and installations invite us to observe and imagine the moon in new ways, are available.

A highlight of the exhibition is Moon, a giant sculpture connecting the Museum’s first and second floors. Created by contemporary British artist Luke Jerram, the internally illuminated replica moon features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, includes a sound composition by BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones, and measures five metres in diameter – to get an idea of scale, it would take 40 people standing shoulder to shoulder to circle the sculpture. “Jerram’s Moon looks ethereal – and almost hyperreal,” says Fast Company.

Consider this as your mid weekend plan; will end at 6 PM (when the expo closes too) and you have enough time to get ready for your Saturday Night plans :)

Excited to explore this with you.
