At the exhibition you can see the gigantic, 25-metre-wide sculpture, 'The largest Moon on Earth'. The showcase depicts all of the Moon's phases from new Moon to full Moon and has an accompanying sound track. One run through the Moon's phases takes 15 minutes – visitors are invited to spend this time watching from the arena floor to experience a lunar month. You can also take a ride in the glass lift to see the moon from above.
