I was curious about what is Museum of the Moon at Borneo Cultures Museum was all about. Saw many people posted about it. A few days ago, I had the opportunity to visit it with a friend from West Malaysia.
Many wondered how they got such a big item into the museum and hung it so high up. It’s actually an inflatable sphere. You can imagine it as a gigantic beach ball printed with the moon’s surface. As simple as that. Hehehe…
To see it, you will have to pay like usual to visit the museum to see the moon. It’s not confined to a small place for itself. It occupies the whole museum. Since I’m a Sarawakian, I paid RM10 for it. Check out the entrance fee in the photo carousel.
The inflatable moon is hung high up there. The best photo spot would be on the 4th floor (at least for me) instead of the 5th floor. The 4th floor has excellent natural lighting albeit being a bit far from it. As for the 5th floor, it’s quite dark and everyone wanted to take their photo from the 5th floor because they didn’t know they could get good and fun photos from the 4th floor too.
Have you been there? If you are interested, better go now before it’s too late. You still have over a month to see it. It will end on 5th August 2023.
