If you have ever dreamt about going to the moon, look no further, because the moon has come to us.

Well, kinda, a new installation called Museum of the Moon is coming to Sydney and it is so realistic we can’t even deal!

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

It’s breathtaking!!

The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surrounds sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programmes their own series lunar inspired events beneath the moon.

The Museum of the Moon is taking over Powerhouse Museum in conjunction with a new exhibition Apollo 11, which is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.
