It has created a sensation across the world and now Museum of the Moon will shine in Life Science Centre in Newcastle from 2 February until 6 May 2019.

The seven-metre-wide spherical artwork, created by UK artist Luke Jerram, is suspended in the air and displays NASA imagery of the lunar surface. This allows visitors to explore the Moon’s surface in incredible detail – without ever stepping foot off the planet.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork being presented worldwide at a number of arts and cultural festivals and venues over the coming years. It has been presented at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, toured five cities of India with the British Council and been presented in Aarhus, Denmark, for the European Capital of Culture.

Museum of the Moon is included with admission to Life Science Centre*. Visitors can also find out more about the Moon in the planetarium show Moonstruck, explore the world of sci-fi in the exhibition Alien Invasion and be entertained with the new show Kitchen Science in the Science Theatre.

International Centre for Life

Science in the 21st century is proving to be fast moving, potentially life-enhancing and certainly controversial. Life has grown out of a desire to deliver a science centre for the North East that is forward looking and seeks to offer these leading edge ideas in a form that is easily accessible to everyone.
