From Lucian's True Historie up to H.G. Wells's The First Men in the Moon, this exhibition traces the scientific and literary background of speculation about life on the Moon. The books on exhibit will reveal a range of theories on Earth’s sole satellite: savage satire and fantasies of escape, utopian commonwealths and tyrannical kings, strange lifeforms and spectacular technologies. And did we mention we have a MOON ROCK?
