Aerial view of Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh

Attraction Information

There isn’t anything more diverse or fascinating than the weird and wonderful world we live in, which is what you’ll discover at Dynamic Earth.

The top visitor attraction in Edinburgh will take you on a journey that spans time to witness the story of planet earth. In this interactive tour feel the heat of a bubbling volcano and the chill of the polar ice on your fingertips before crash landing in the tropical rainforest and coming face to face with dinosaurs!

If that’s not enough for you Scotland’s only 360-degree full dome film theatre will take you deep inside nature with an all-encompassing visual movie experience. Once you’ve recovered from your global trek children can enjoy the soft play and natural selection gift shop. 

The history of the planet in one afternoon!
