The breath-taking Museum of the Moon comes to the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London from mid-December ...

Press Release

UK artist Luke Jerram’s astonishing installation The Museum of the Moon is coming to the Old Royal
Naval College this winter. As the nights draw in there’s no better time for Jerram’s illuminated
installation to be displayed in the magnificent Painted Hall from Tuesday 13th December 2022 –
Sunday 5th February 2023, alongside a lunar-inspired season of events. Jerram returns to the Old
Royal Naval College following the success of his Gaia installation in 2021.
The remarkable vision of the moon meets the grandeur of Sir Christopher Wren’s iconic buildings
on the banks of the river Thames in London. The Old Royal Naval College and its majestic 18th
century Painted Hall are the perfect setting for visitors to marvel at the wonder of The Museum of
the Moon this winter.

Visitors to this magical setting can experience the seven metre, to-scale Moon, created using NASA
imagery, as it hangs in the Baroque Painted Hall. The imagery features minute detail of the lunar
surface, taking the viewer right round to the dark side of the moon. The internally-lit installation
features a surround sound composition by BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones for a stunning and
profound art-meets-nature experience.

Celebrate Moonlit Christmas with a specially curated programme this December, including moon-themed Lates and a special Moonlight Dining Experience: a sparkling evening meal with live
performance under the Museum of the Moon – the ultimate Christmas dinner. For families, Father
Christmas is stopping off at the Painted Hall this festive season to meet the children and tell a
moon-inspired story at Santa’s Over the Moon. Visitors can indulge in a Festive Afternoon Tea in
the historic Admiral’s House on select Sundays in November and December.

January is the perfect time to set intentions, and a series of yoga sessions in the serene setting of
the Museum of the Moon promises to do just that. The sessions include pre-work morning yoga
classes every Wednesday in January until 1st February, a full moon workshop, sound bath,
movement workshop and weekend yoga brunch sessions that will be energising and uplifting
within the relaxing and meditative atmosphere of the Painted Hall.

The Museum of the Moon runs from 13th December 2022 – Sunday 5th February 2023. Find out more and book tickets at
