The Museum of the Moon is an incredible combination of technical and scientific skill that creates a personal connection with the viewer.

Made using detailed NASA moon imagery and fusing moonlight and surround sound music, British installation artist Luke Jerram's 23-foot high, giant three-dimensional moon will be suspended in the centre of the Grade I listed building for all to see.

The installation combines lunar imagery, moonlight and a surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.

And the best news of all is that the exhibition will be free for all to see.

A programme of lunar-inspired events will accompany the Museum of the Moon. Including live music, film, science activities, talks and creative workshops.

There will be some ticketed events (free and paid) during the time the moon installation is on display.

The Museum of the Moon goes on display from 2 February to 24 February 2019.
