There's a ruinous world up there in the sky. The landscape is razed and ravaged. I'm talking about the Moon. Perhaps you heard of it? It's difficult not to notice a worldly ornament, especially if its rocky face was jabbed a million times by asteroids and comets. So...straddle your nearest bottle rocket, light the wick, and let's blastoff to the Museum of Scars!
You’re guaranteed to gawk at variety of lovely craters: Catharina, Cyrillius, Theophilus, Menelaus, Posidonius…plus more!
You’ll float above ancient solidified lava plains and devastated ridges. Mountains of madness reach upward into the inky black—the sea that holds the stars. Our imagination can only paint an ethereal picture of what exists beyond our visual limit.
Admission is free! The Museum of Scars is open 24/7: press the play button and enjoy the view!
