In 2019, the fiftieth anniversary of man’s first steps on the Moon is an opportunity to study, present and celebrate the long history that links humans with this familiar celestial body, through the artworks and objects that embody the countless visions and emotions it has inspired.

This five-part exhibition is a journey to the Moon, through dimensions both real and imaginary. Each stage takes visitors on a voyage through time, thanks to works from Antiquity to the present day, produced mainly in Europe but also by African, Arab and Far Eastern civilisations, as well as scientific instruments that testify to our quest to learn more about this celestial body.
