Moon! Mooon! Mooooooooon!


The latest addition to the Museum lobby is a slightly gobsmacking specialist scientific two-foot-diameter contoured globe of The Moon.

Specially created as one of a set of four after the NASA lunar missions, the globe is an authentic dark grey (the Moon only looks white when its airless surface is fiercely illuminated by the Sun), and is marked out with landing sites for the Apollo missions.

Too big for our usual shelved storage, we put The Moon straight out into the museum while we decide what to do with it long-term. It's currently presiding over the front corner of the Glamour of Brighton display – this is a purely temporary display position, but who knows ... the counter volunteers are getting kinda used to it being there ...

We’ll have stories, facepainting, arts and crafts, toys and games and all the good stuff you’d normally expect from one of our monthly PlayDay events. Tickets are less than the regular price of an adult ticket and allow one child and accompanying adult into the museum venue as well as all of the activities.
Things start at 2 and finish at 4.30 but feel free to arrive anytime in between. And as always, if your cubs feel like dressing up in a jungley style they should! We always encourage a bit of dress-up.
Tickets are £5.50, or half price for members and patrons and are available in the foyer on the day.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all here, under the train station!
