The Moon exhibition at the National Maritime Museum features over 180 incredible objects, art works and artefacts.
Ahead of the opening of the exhibition on 19 July 2019, we ask three of the exhibition's curators to tell us about their favourite items on display, and what they tell us about our relationship with the Moon.
