Museum of the Moon
The centrepiece of Burns&Beyond is the installation of the spectacular Museum of the Moon in St Giles’ Cathedral. This touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram measures seven metres in diameter and features incredibly detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface.
Museum of the Moon will be free to visit during daylight hours from Tuesday 22 January to Saturday 26 January, but really comes into its own during the dark evening hours when the full majesty of the artwork can be enjoyed accompanied by a specially commissioned musical score.
Museum of the Moon will also be accompanied by a programme of special events and performances:
Tuesday 22 January
'Moon Lecture' by Dr William Taylor
Wednesday 23 January
Thursday 24 January
St Giles' Cathedral Choir
Friday 25 January
