Thousands across UK viewing stunning world-famous Museum of the Moon art installation 

By Jill Dando News

The incredible Museum of the Moon’ exhibition uses NASA imagery to recreate an amazingly realistic impression of the moon’s surface.

It is now touring the UK and is currently at St Mary Magdalene Church in Taunton, Somerset before moving on to Northwich, Cheshire at the end of April.

It was created by Bristol artist Luke Jerram and has been on display at both Exeter and Wells Cathedral.

The installation, which features music compared by BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award-winning composer Dan Jones, has been wowing audiences across the world since 2016.


Jill Dando News visited the incredible exhibition. One mum described it as “stunning and amazingly realistic”.

Each centimetre of the sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface, making it appear highly realistic
