To mark the imminent arrival of the Museum of the Moon at Chichester Cathedral, we are thrilled to share with you a diverse programme of events, including talks, workshops and evening viewings.
The Museum of the Moon will be on display from 25th October – 14th November 2021. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the Museum of the Moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally-lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
The artwork will be accompanied by a programme of events, concerts and late-night openings, delivered by a variety of organisations, including the South Downs Planetarium, Chichester’s Novium Museum and the West Sussex Library Service, encouraging people far and wide to celebrate the night skies of Sussex. Read on below to find out more.
You can drop-in to visit the Museum of the Moon from 9.00am - 5.00pm Monday to Saturday and 12.00pm - 2.00pm Sunday, this does not need to be pre-booked.
