Museum of the Moon

Federation Square is being illuminated by the light of a giant silvery moon thanks to Luke Jerram’s touring artwork


Time Out says

If you missed out on seeing this wondrous exhibit during Rising festival (sadly only a handful of people did before it was cancelled), there is some good news. World-famous Museum of the Moon is now in Federation Square until April 15.

Museum of the Moon is essentially a seven-metre diameter spherical sculpture that features large-scale NASA imagery of the lunar surface. It’s shown at a scale of 1:500,000, which means each centimetre of the sculpture represents five kilometres of the Moon’s actual surface.  

Created by UK artist Luke Jerram, Museum of the Moon has travelled all over the world in recent years, including a stint in Melbourne at Scienceworks in 2018. What’s cool about the installation is that it blends detailed lunar imagery, internally illuminated “moonlight” and a specially designed soundtrack created by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones.

The Museum of the Moon is back to celebrate Marvel's new Moon Knight show.

Museum of the Moon is free to attend at the Atrium in Federation Square.
