The MoonNot just for the lunatics and the conspiracy theorists, The Moon is a major exhibition at the Royal Museums Greenwich, timed to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the first moon landing on 20th July 1969. The earliest drawings of the Moon, made using a telescope by Thomas Harriott, are loaned from the collection of Lord Egremont, along with key pieces from the Royal Astronomical Society, Victoria and Albert Museum and Science Museum. You can see Apollo space programme artefacts from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. as well as the Royal Museums Greenwich's own 100-inch map of the Moon by Hugh Percy Wilkins, shown to the public for the first time. Each historical and contemporary artwork invites us to explore our evolving relationship with the moon.

 

About National Maritime Museum

Located in the heart of Greenwich, the National Maritime Museum has a monumental mission: to showcase mankind's association with the sea. The collection dates back to 1823 when a National Gallery of Naval Art was established, and the museum is housed in an elegant building which used to be an asylum.
