Taunton Minster, Church of St Mary Magdalene plays host to the world-famous art installation by Luke Jerram.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.
Measuring six metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it gathers new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programmes their own series lunar inspired events beneath the moon.

The last dates to see this fantastic installation are below
Tuesday 29th: 10am - 2pm
Wednesday 30th: 10am - 2pm
Thursday 31st: 10am - 2pm / 7pm - 9pm
