Dorset Moon

10 April 2019

It has travelled all over the world and wowed thousands. Now Luke Jerram’s internationally acclaimed Museum of the Moon is making its way to Dorset for the first time as part of DORSET MOON; the exciting new arts event for summer 2019. 

Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon is an astounding seven-metre-diameter spherical sculpture. 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 and makes its Dorset debut in three stunning locations this summer centred round a full programme of free lunar-inspired events that will create an experience that is out of this world!

This stunning illumination will land in Bournemouth, Sherborne and Weymouth over three weekends:
