Take a Virtual Reality trip to the Moon in the Zero Gravity Lunar Library. Explore photographs and film of Wakefield in 1969, the same year Apollo 11 made its historic journey into space and Mankind first walked on the Moon, alongside a series of contemporary talking-head films exploring people's different takes and relationships with the Moon.

Enjoy floating around the Lunar Library where readers from Wakefield Libraries have contributed reviews of books, they'd take on a journey to the Moon - catch one if you can! Walk on the Moon's spectacular surface and plant your own Wakefield flag in the moondust.

Zero Gravity Lunar Library can be experienced in VR, on an interactive screen and as film screenings throughout the Museum of the Moon. It will then be available for download.

Devised and produced by One to One Development Trust, an arts organisation celebrating their 30-year anniversary. To keep up to date use #ZeroGravityLunarLibrary or visit
