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.

At its heart is Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon, 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.

This stunning illuminated sculpture created using high-definition NASA imagery of the moon’s surface will land in Bournemouth, Sherborne and Weymouth.

Dorset Moon is produced by the Dorset Festivals Consortium: Inside Out Dorset (produced by Activate), b-side and Bournemouth Arts By the Sea. Commissioned by the Arts Development Company with funding from European Regional Development Fund and Arts Council England.
