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? An epic installation called Museum of the Moon is making that trip to space seem a lot closer than you would think...

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. The idea is to find a little spot on the floor under the moon and gaze at her girth and beauty.

Museum of the Moon will be shown in conjunction with a new exhibition Apollo 11, premiering at the Powerhouse Museum to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
