Museum of the Moon is a huge scale replica of the moon which uses detailed imagery from NASA.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound musical composition.

Don’t miss your chance to see this artwork as it creates an ethereal sight. You can even walk and sit beside the moon and bath in its own moonlight.

Totality is a stunning large rotating mirror ball that illuminates and sparkles with over 10,000 images of nearly every solar eclipse documented by humankind.Totality creates an immersive environment, shrouding the walls, floor and viewer in tiny illuminated solar eclipses. The artwork is on display as part of the Arts Council Collection National Partnership Programme.
