The Moon has been a source of wonder, inspiration, and knowledge for all of human history. As people studied and recorded the patterns of the Moon’s movements, they discovered that the Moon was much more than a mysterious light in our sky—it was a place they might be able to visit some day.
Thank you to the staff of the Adler Planetarium for their assistance in creating these images of our collection and this exhibition.
