The world-renowned artist has created a five-meter accurate replica of the moon by fusing imagery from detailed NASA pictures of the lunar surface.

The travelling exhibit has visited over 30 countries across the world including England, Latvia, India, Belgium, and Australia.

What else is on at OliOli over Eid?


Apart from visiting the moon, OliOli has introduced a limited edition for a limited time for families. For a starting price of Dhs229, two children and two children will be able to enjoy all that OliOli has to offer over Eid. It grants you a pass to see the moon.

The play museum targets children aged two to 11 and will allow them to let their imagination run free. At the moment, OliOli also has a new mission launched where children and parents can join the OliOli Secret Service (OSS) and outwit Cobra –  the leader of the Very Evil Network of Mischief (VENOM). There are interactive challenges and puzzles for little agents to solve to enter the OSS headquarters where they will have to navigate laser beams, avoid trapped doors and more.
