Upcoming redevelopments include:
ShowDome - Planetarium - Dynamic Earth has a ShowDome now where we show an exciting range of films in 360 degrees. We want to upgrade this with thrilling new hardware and software that will allow us to see the entire known universe, access data from NASA missions, explore planets and moons and possibly even tour the human brain.
This project will cost £662,000

Oceans Galleries - Currently there are two galleries demonstrating undersea world and how we use the oceans for human benefit. A partnership with Marine Scientists at the University of Edinburgh who are leading on the multinational European project has provided seed funding for us to redevelop our Oceans galleries and disseminate their findings.

This project has not yet been costed, but is anticipated to be in the region of £1-2 million.
Evolution Galleries - New galleries are planned to replace the current Casualties and Survivors, which has been in existence since 1999. The refurbished space will include about 450 metres squared of new installations internally as well as outdoor learning space where workshops can be held and short educational walks started to Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park.
This project will cost £1.5 million
