Museum of the Moon (during opening hours)

Monday 13 September to Thursday 11 November

During your visit this autumn see Durham Cathedral in a whole new light, as Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon illuminates the nave. Experience the installation during normal opening hours.


The seven-metre diameter moon installation will give the high vaulted ceiling and colossal carved columns a glow up like you’ve never seen before. Experience Museum of the Moon daily, during cathedral opening hours (10am-4pm Monday-Saturday, 12noon-4pm Sunday).

No admission cost or tickets needed. It takes £5 every minute to care for the cathedral's buildings, so please consider making a £5 donation when you visit.

A moon-themed programme of events accompanies the installation, including late night openings, cathedral tours with a twist, star gazing, half term activities and special services of worship. For details and booking explore our What's On page.
