I've just seen the travelling Museum of the Moon exhibition in Leicester, and I highly recommend it. It's a high resolution 7 metre diameter 3D model of the moon that you can walk around, and it's simply gobsmacking. I took along my Vixen 2.1 x 42 super-wide angle binoculars, and Pentax Papilio 6.5 x 21 close-focussing binoculars and spent hours looking it over - great views of both near side and far side. I think it's in Leicester for another week, and in Glasgow for an extended period starting some time in May. If you're into lunar observation you'd be crazy to miss it.
Anyone lucky enough to be in New York between now and mid April 2017 may enjoy the exhibition Time and the Cosmos in Greco-Roman Antiquity at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, 15 East 84th St., Manhattan. There's also an interesting selection of photographs on the exhibition's web-page and a printed catalogue to boot: http://isaw.nyu.edu/exhibitions/time-cosmos/objects And a review from the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/25/science/time-ancient-rome-greece.html?_r=0 Greek astronomer Aratus inspired by Urania on a Byzantine silver dish lent from a private collection in the UK.
