Welcome to the Museum of the Moon, our new gallery where you can get up close and visually explore the lunar surface. Created by Artist Luke Jerram there are only 7 moons in the world and one of them has found a home with us at OliOli®.
We’ve gazed up in wonder at the night sky for years and enjoyed it’s beauty, and now you can take a closer look at the lunar surface without having to set foot in a rocket!
Come and immerse yourself around our celestial neighborhood where those famous words “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” were uttered. With our VR experience you can drive around the lunar surface in a moon rover just as the astronauts did all those years ago.
As you relax and unwind in this new gallery allow the music designed by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones to let you drift off on an out of this world adventure.
We have always referred to it as “The Moon” because for a long time we were not aware of other moonsin our solar system until Galileo discovered moons orbiting Jupiter. We are now aware of over 200 moons in our solar system.
Only 12 people have walked on the surface of the moon, the last person to do so was on the 14th December 1972. We haven’t returned in almost 50 years, but perhaps you will get the chance to visit the moon some day in the future.
It takes 3 days by rocket to reach The Moon. If you could walk to the moon it would take 9.5 years to reach it (without breaks).
We look forward to welcoming you to experience the fascinating Moon at OliOli®!
