moon for sale

As of 7 October in one of the Rijksmuseum's unoccupied towers, one of the oldest objects in the museum's collection will be on display: a moon rock.

The rock, which was brought back from the moon, is the most important component of the art project Fly Me To The Moon, which the artist duo Liesbeth Bik and Jos van der Pol will present in the museum. The museum tower has never before been open to the public and also the moon rock will be on display for the first time for a broad public.

Do you want to see the moon rock up close, then make a reservation for a guided tour of the tower where the rock is on display.

This will all be covered in the art project. The moon rock will be displayed in a showcase in one of the towers of the main building. Visitors will only be allowed to enter the building in small supervised groups.

A reading about the moon rock will be held on 7 October... at full moon.
