Museum of the Moon is a new touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. The art installation uses detailed imagery from NASA of the lunar surface to create a scale replica of the moon (approximate scale of 1:500,000).

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound musical composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones.

The artwork creates an ethereal sight that visitors can enjoy by walking and sit by side of the moon and bath in its own moonlight.

This is the first time the touring artwork will be seen in the Midlands and has previously been on show around the UK and in Belgium, France and the Netherlands.

Entry to Museum of the Moon is included in the Thinktank ticket price.
