The Museum of the Moon

Between 9-18 March 2018, an art installation of a 7m diameter model of the Moon by Luke Jerram is placed in the Cathedral, as part of a joint project led by the University of Leicester to mark British Science Week 2018. Space will be made available for personal reflection and prayer, and there will also be special activities for children and young people during normal visiting hours.

Below you will find details of events during the week of the installation. If you have any questions, please contact the Cathedral Office via 0116 261 5357. Unless otherwise stated, visiting the exhibition will not require tickets, and entry to the Cathedral is free (a £3 donation is recommended).
