Whether you'd define yourself as a space-geek or not, call it wild fascination or complete lunacy, we've all dreamed of flying to outer space and walking on the moon at some point in our lives. Well, guess what? Museum of the Moon is making that trip to space seem a lot closer than you would think.

This incedible art installation is about to embark on a world tour, and wouldn't you know, it's coming Down Under! Made famous by the gigantic, seven metre-wide moon suspended in mid air that's at the core of the exhibition, every little detail from craters to surface shadows of our moon will be on show at this jaw-dropping show. It's time to channel your inner astronaut and get amongst the touring artwork by UK artist, Luke Jerram.

Paired with this mind-boggling display of levitating space rock will be a rocking soundtrack, composed by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer, Dan Jones. Let's just say his music will make the astronomic experience even more surreal—if you can believe it. Why not find a little spot on the floor under the moon and gaze at her girth and beauty.

Museum of the Moon will be hitting Scienceworks in Melbourne from December 1 2018 to April 28 2019. It's no orbit in outer space, but it is one small step for humankind... etc.
