In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, this exhibition charts the cultural and scientific story of humanity's relationship with our celestial neighbour.

This major exhibition from the National Maritime Museum brings together over 180 objects – including artefacts, artworks and interactive features – which demonstrate how we have been captivated and inspired by the moon throughout history, and what it means to us today.

On display are the 'Snoopy Cap' Communications Carrier, worn by astronaut Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin during Apollo 11, lunar samples collected from NASA's Apollo missions and the Soviet Union's Luna programme, works by artists including JMW Turner, El Anatsui and Katie Paterson, and Hugh Percy Wilkins's moon map.
