Our Dynamic Earth

UK»Scotland»Lothian»Edinburgh»Our Dynamic Earth

Our Dynamic Earth takes you on a journey through out planets past, present and future, with interactive exhibits and impressive technology. Beginning with the Big Bang, children and adults alike can witness the creation of the Earth, follow the planet through its evolution and even catch glimpses of its future.

From dry tundra to the bottom of the ocean, a journey through Our Dynamic Earth is exciting, fun and engaging. Whether coming face to face with an extinct dinosaur, feeling the sticky heat of a tropical rainforest or flying over glaciers in prehistoric Scotland, Our Dynamic Earth presents all aspects of the planet we live in. Population growth, concepts of time and the realities of climate change are just the tip of the iceberg - and we even have a real one of those too, sitting beneath the magical Aurora Borealis!
