Our Moon: Then, Now & Beyond education programme

Let MOON by British artist Luke Jerram, bathe you in its silvery glow. This 4-metre replica moon, printed with high-resolution NASA imagery, lets you see the moon in all its glory. Use a tellurion to learn about the moon’s orbit and explore the maramataka, the Maaori lunar calendar.

  • Learn about attempts to discover the moon’s secrets through astronomy, and the space race of the 1960s
  • Experience the moon landing from the comfort of a replica 1960s living room
  • Discuss the future of astronomy and develop an understanding of the potential of Aotearoa New Zealand’s space economy

This education programme can be tailored to all ages and is available both in person and online.
