Marvel at the Moon in the Painted Hall 

Following the phenomenal sold-out installation of Gaia in the Painted Hall in 2021, artist Luke Jerram returns to the Old Royal Naval College with his incredible artwork Museum of the Moon.

Set in the magnificent Painted Hall, this awe-inspiring large-scale installation promises to be truly breathtaking. Gaze up to the beautifully illuminated lunar landscape featuring NASA imagery suspended against the unique Baroque backdrop of the Painted Hall.
