This February have a totally unique visitor experience in the Harris Museum when a giant moon goes on display!
The Museum of the Moon is an incredible combination of technical and scientific skill that creates a personal connection with the viewer in this temporary exhibition. Made using detailed NASA moon imagery and fusing moonlight and surround sound music, British installation artist Luke Jerram’s 23-foot high, giant three-dimensional moon will be suspended in the centre of the building for all to see.
The Museum of the Moon will be displayed in a public area and tickets are not required.
On the opening day of the exhibition on Saturday 2nd February the museum will stay open until 7.30pm, there will also be guided tours of the Moon, led by UCLan Astrophysics when you can learn some fascinating facts about its significant sites and its geology. Find out which places were visited by historic moon missions including the recent Chinese Chang’e-4 lander. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and take place at 3.30pm, 4.45pm and 6pm, tours are free and operate on a ’first come, first served’ basis.
