Throughout history, the Moon has entranced artists, poets, scientists, writers, and musicians the world over. To the Moon focuses on our fascination with the moon, seeing it as a gateway to the larger universe and the first and most important step in space exploration.


Our lunar longings serve as a unique mirror that reflects humankind and in capturing this fascination the exhibition traces the moon as a symbol in history, popular culture, and art. The multiform approach provides a lens for visitors to understand both our poetic yearning for the moon alongside our scientific accomplishments in early and imminent future moon travels. Combining immersive lunar art with material from popular culture, Aboriginal culture, and planetary science, this exhibition explores the Moon as one of the great symbols of our culture.


Museum of the Moon


To the Moon features the incredible 'Museum of the Moon', a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. 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*. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones. This presentation will be supported by a series of lunar-inspired programming.


*The massive 23-metre wide, high-resolution image used to create the moon artwork, was created by the Astrogeology Science Centre in the USA. The imagery was taken by a NASA satellite carrying the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera launched in 2010.
