According to the website, the Museum of the Moon is 7 metres in diameter and a “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.”

As this is a travelling artwork, it will be presented in different ways be it indoors or outdoors, so if you have experienced it before, it may be different at another location!

“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.”
