Museum of the Moon by Luke Jerram

Free event: Book a Ticket

Car-parking at Museum of the Moon

Apart from a limited number of space for Blue Badge holders, there is no car parking in the Tree Cathedral car parks. We highly recommend that all ticketholders head for the public car parks at Willen Lake - or walk or cycle to the event.


Luke Jerram’s sister artwork to Gaia, Museum of the Moon will be set outdoors within Milton Keynes’ spectacular Tree Cathedral.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, 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 installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones.

Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live arts projects. Living in the UK but working internationally for 19 years, Jerram has created a number of extraordinary art projects which have excited and inspired people around the globe. Jerram has a set of different narratives that make up his practice which are developing in parallel with one another. He is known worldwide for his large-scale public artworks.
