Cosmo cartoons

Space exploration in science and pop culture

Novels, movies, comics, video games, from Jules Verne to Interstellar: how many mediums have been used to recount the exploration of the universe? To find out, just go to the MUSE of Trento, the renowned museum of Natural History and Sciences, which was designed by the celebrated architect Renzo Piano located in the Le Albere complex, just a few minutes’ walk from the historic city centre.

Until June 16th 2020 the MUSE will host the “Cosmo Cartoons” exhibition which, through an immersive and interactive tour, showcases the pop-culture perspective of the space race, without forgetting about the relevant science and technology.

The exhibition focused mainly on science fiction, with illustrations ranging from the novels by Jules Verne to American magazines of the 50s and the famous front covers of the Urania science-fiction magazines. Then there is even a part dedicated to cinematography, which has always drawn great inspiration from space exploration: ranging from the famous "A Trip to the Moon" by Georges Méliès (1902) to the more recent blockbusters such as "Gravity" (2013) and "Interstellar" (2014 ).

An entire section of the exhibition is dedicated to the moon landing of Apollo 11, in 1969. In addition, there are various games and video games that have been inspired by science fiction in some way.

However, the strong point of the exhibition is its unique ability to involve the general public who is invited to interact with interactive and multimedia installations, audio stations and thematic reading corners, and even an actual play area suitable for all ages.

Entry to the exhibition is included in the museum admission ticket
