This exhibition is now closed

The Moon was the UK’s biggest exhibition dedicated to Earth’s celestial neighbour in 2019.

Charting the cultural and scientific story of our relationship with the Moon, the exhibition featured over 180 objects, including artefacts from NASA's Apollo 11 mission.

The exhibition allowed visitors to reconnect with the wonders of the Moon through artefacts, artworks and interactive moments, and discover how it has captivated and inspired us throughout history.

Take a giant leap to Greenwich and go see this excellent exhibition

Londonist ★★★★

As well as re-living the momentous events of the original 'Space Race', the exhibition also looked ahead to the future of space exploration and the 21st century drive for humans to return to the Moon.
