After travelling around the world, mesmerising millions of people across the globe, this incredible seven-metre-wide Museum of the MoonÂ has arrived on the Gold Coast, Australia!
Museum of the Moon is a floating moon sculpture with detailed NASA imagery on it’s surface. Each centimetre of the replica is equal to 5 kms of the lunar surface.
While you bathe in the moonlight, listen to a surround-sound composition, featuring archive audio from the moon landings, by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones. As the sculpture travels around the globe, it highlights the latest moon science and gathers new musical compositions, personal responses, stories and mythologies from each stop.
“A place to sit, relax, grab a bite to eat and enjoy the atmosphere of the Commonwealth Games 2018.”
