To the Moon at WA Museum Boola Bardip

To The Moon exhibition at WA Museum Boola Bardip is an exciting and captivating lunar adventure designed for the whole family. The exhibition features seven special zones dedicated to the Moon’s influence on human culture and exploration. It seamlessly intertwines lunar art, pop culture, planetary science, historical insights, and the perspectives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is the “Museum of the Moon” by UK Artist Luke Jerram. This seven-metre-wide internally illuminated sculpture reflects the Moon’s surface with precise NASA imagery, and every centimetre equates to 5 km of lunar landscape.

Visitors can also step into a replica 60’s lounge room and experience Armstrong’s historic first steps on the moon in “The Eagle Has Landed” exhibit.

The exhibition also showcases captivating artworks by influential Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists in the “Dreaming the Moon” zone.

Visitors can also encounter a real piece of the moon in the “NASA’s Moon Rock” exhibit.

In addition, visitors can compose their very own “Ode to the Moon” using the digital collage writing technique that David Bowie used to create Space Oddity in the “Ode to the Moon” exhibit. The “Future of the Moon” exhibit features a cool 3D model of the Space Launch System mega rocket and Orion, which successfully launched as the first mission of the exciting Artemis program that aims to send humans back to the moon.

The exhibition also features interactive areas that will spark children’s imagination, such as digital colouring and retro arcade games. Visitors can also participate in Moon themed events taking place throughout the exhibition’s run.
