The visual impaired students need science educational kit at the school to assist their learning process in science. However, there are lack of the educational kit especially on the topic of astronomy. To introduce the structure of the moon, the moon topography model has been made in circular shape only shown the near side of the moon. The moon topography module are easy to be made since it was made based on low cost material. The expertise on astronomy and visual impaired media marked the 76.67 % and 94 % ideal percentage, respectively. The visual impaired students were able to study the moon crater and mare by using the kit and the braille printed learning book. They also showed the improvement in the material understanding skill.
