Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon arrives at Derby Cathedral

After much excitement ‘Museum of the Moon’ by renowned artist Luke Jerram has arrived at Derby Cathedral! Suspended over the Nave and accompanied by a surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor-Novello award winning composer, Dan Jones, it is open to visitors until 10th November.

Throughout the exhibition, day-time entry to the Cathedral will be free of charge, although a suggested donation of £3 per person is requested which will go towards the care and work of Derby Cathedral, helping to keep its doors open for all.

For a truly special experience, people can book a ticket to visit in the evening when the artwork will come into its own. The Cathedral will remain open late on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings during the exhibition. Special evening viewings will run from 18:00 – 20:30 (last entry is 20:00) and booking is required. Find out more about booking here

During our special evening viewings there is the opportunity to upgrade your ticket and take in the ‘View above the Moon’, from our balcony. Upgrades can be added on at the time of booking.

There is also a programme of events taking place throughout the exhibition with something for everyone. From a dining experience under the moon, concerts and live performances to wellbeing events, poetry readings and a kids take-over from the National Space Centre.

The full programme can be found here.
