Museum of the Moon at University of Bristol

About

As part of the #YearofPilgrimage, Bristol Cathedral will be hosting Luke Jerram’s celebrated Museum of the Moon in August 2020.  

The Moon will be on display in the crossing of Bristol Cathedral from Friday 7 August until Bank Holiday Monday 31 August, with opportunities to book to experience the artwork in the evenings as well. 

Donations and proceeds from the display of the artwork will go towards the work of Bristol-based charity St Mungo’s, who work towards ending homelessness and rebuilding the lives of those affected by it. To deepen your experience of this exceptional artwork, the Cathedral will be offering a curated programme of events, run in collaboration with other Bristol institutions, including concerts, recitals, children’s craft events, and more.  


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.  

Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon is being presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it gathers new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.  

The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning Bristol-based composer Dan Jones.
