In the 50th anniversary year of the first man to walk on The Moon, experience the Museum of the Moon at The Collection museum in Lincoln.

The touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram will be accompanied by an exciting and lively programme of events, including Late Night multi-arts experiences, afternoon film screenings and new performances and art commissions.

Measuring six metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:600,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 6km 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. Each venue also programmes their own series lunar inspired events beneath the moon.
