Lincoln museum's out of this world exhibition

More news, no ads


Visitors to Lincoln’s Collection Museum will be able to explore the planet like never before thanks to the new exhibition.

Those who attend the museum from Saturday, March 5, will be able to gaze upon the Earth as if from space - without ever having to leave the atmosphere. The awe-inspiring art installation, called Gaia, is by the same artist who brought the moon to The Collection in 2018, Luke Jerram.

Measuring six metres in diameter, the internally-lit sphere is 2.1 million times smaller than the real Earth and has been recreated from 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface - and each centimetre of the sculpture represents 21km of our planet.

A specially-made surround sound composition by BAFTA award winning Composer Dan Jones is played alongside the sculpture.

An exciting programme of events and talks will invite visitors to enjoy this amazing artwork in a variety of ways.

You’ll be able to take part in late night openings to Earth-lit yoga sessions; there promises to be something for everyone.

Highlights from the Collection and Usher Gallery’s geological collections will be on display in the Courtyard Gallery, with a trail for art and science lovers to follow in the Usher Gallery.
