Explore the mysteries of our moon in this stunning installation suspended in the Well of Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.

Artist Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon fuses lunar imagery, moonlight, and a surround-soundscape by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones.

Take a closer look at the moon’s surface, created from detailed NASA imagery and reproduced on a 1:500,000 scale, which is lit up from within.

And enjoy a specially-curated programme of lunar-inspired events as the 23ft sphere casts a mesmeric glow over its spectacular surroundings and draws in the Tall Ships on the ever-changing tides.

Our moon has inspired generations of writers, poets, musicians and artists.

And imagination is the only limit for Luke Jerram, who creates exciting and inspiring large-scale sculptures, installations and live art projects.

His work includes Play Me I’m Yours, a street piano installation seen in more than 55 cities worldwide; Park and Slide, a 300ft street water slide, and the evocative Sky Orchestra – featuring seven balloons playing music over a city at dawn.

Jerram previously worked in Liverpool in Capital of Culture year when he created a giant hot air balloon at FACT. He has also designed an artwork, Tribute, for the city’s new Royal Liverpool Hospital.
