The distance between the Earth and the Moon is variable, but for this discussion's sake let's go with the average distance, which is 384,393 km (238,854 mi).

Next, we know that the distance from the surface of the earth to the center is approximately 6,378 km (3963 mi).

When added together, the distance from the center of the Earth to the Moon is 390,771 km or 242,814 miles.

**Sources:**

The distance from centre of the Earth to the surface is 6,371 km and from the surface of the Earth to the moon is 384,400. So, the ultimate answer of your question is 6,371 + 384400. IT is something.
