The Moon: A Voyage Through Time

Friday, June 14

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until Sunday, August 18, 2019

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, The Moon: A Voyage Through Time explores our enduring fascination with this enchanting orb in the sky and looks at the role it has played in faith, science, and the arts across the Muslim world and beyond.

This major new exhibition showcases ancient artifacts, important miniature paintings, scientific instruments, Islamic manuscripts, and contemporary art. Together with interactive devices, displays, and installations The Moon: A Voyage Through Time invites us to observe and imagine the moon in new ways.

A highlight of the exhibition is Moon, a giant sculpture connecting the Museum’s first and second floors. Created by contemporary British artist Luke Jerram, the internally illuminated moon-replica features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, includes a sound composition by BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones, and measures five meters in diameter.

Moon: A Voyage Through Time will continue until August 18 and will be accompanied by related programming including March Break hands-on activities for families, insight tours of the exhibition, talks, workshops, a Moon Mission summer camp for children, and a spoken word/poetry performance series called MoonVerse.
