Royal Museums Greenwich - Exciting new exhibition: The Moon 🌛

Royal Museums Greenwich

The Moon exhibition
Opening July 2019
We're pleased to announce our major new exhibition for 2019. The Moon explorers our evolving relationship with our nearest celestial neighbour – from prehistory to the present.

Celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing, bust moon-related myths, see amazing objects that have been to the Moon and back, and ask yourself: what does the Moon mean to us today?
