Blue Glowing moon. You saw me standing alone. Without a dream in my heart. Without a love of my own.
It’s back. It’s one giant leap. It’s the Museum of the Moon.
Artist Luke Jerram’s majestic, giant moon is returning to London at Greenwich’s Painted Hall for a glowing start to February. It’s hit up a few spots around the capital before — including the Kensington and Chelsea festival in summer ’21 and the very same Painted Hall back in December — and now, it’ll reside there once again on February 3. This time around, you can bag special access, with a theatrical after hours session.
The Museum of the Moon is a dream for any keen photographer, and at this special session, you’ll be able to admire the masterpiece and much more. On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a moon-themed cocktail (or alternative drink) from the pop-up bar, before indulging in a 360-photo experience and neon face painting. There’ll even be performances from contact jugglers!
Much like its muse up in the sky, Luke Jerram’s creation leads a busy life. Before arriving in the marvellous Painted Hall, it’s got commitments all over the world, from Portsmouth to San Francisco to Mexico to Münster.
As you might imagine, there’s plenty of demand to see the beautiful model of the moon, which is complimented by a sound composition by composer Dan Jones. And, get this — there’s beds for visitors to lie down on and gaze out at the floating moon.
