Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon

Fifty years on from the first moon landing, three Dorset arts festivals join forces to present DORSET MOON, an exciting new addition to the 2019 summer season.

Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon is an astounding seven metre diameter spherical sculpture and 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.

This incredible installation is a fusion of large-scale NASA lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound audio created by Ivor Novello Award and BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones.
