What is Dynamic Earth

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.

Watch trailers below to take a look inside.
