Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience which invites you to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Through a series of interactive exhibits, state of the art technology and even a 4D encounter you will feel the heat of a bubbling volcano, face the chill of polar ice, fly across the globe before crash landing in a tropical rainforest. As if this wasn’t enough, Dynamic Earth is home to Scotland’s only 360 degree full dome film theatre. We have a variety of films showing throughout the year. To find out which film is currently running please visit ShowDome.
*Our Restless Earth gallery is currently having some technical difficulties with the shaky floor, the technical team are working very hard to try and fix the problem. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Watch trailers below to take a look inside.
