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 end to 2022. It’s hit up a few spots around the capital before—including the Kensington and Chelsea festival in summer ’21—and will reside in the Painted Hall between December 13 and February 5.
The Museum of the Moon is a dream for any keen photographer, and this time around there’s even a space reserved on Mondays for those hoping to catch the perfect shot of the spherical wonder for the ‘gram.
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.
On December 16, you can also book luxury dining under the moonlight. Three festive courses, champagne, baileys truffles, live entertainment and much more can be enjoyed with an undefeated lunar backdrop in the Painted Hall. We also hear Santa will be taking you through to Christmas eve at the Museum of the Moon, visiting to tell stories and take photos with the glow of the model giving him that extra bit of festive magic.
