New for 2014
This April, Harry Potter style magic meets the latest in science interpretation with the opening of Scotland's Time Lords, Our Dynamic Earth's biggest ever redevelopment.
The journey begins as oak panelled doors open on a classroom where the ghost of James Hutton demonstrates his theories on how the Earth was formed, moves on to a gallery with a giant illuminated globe showing the effect of plate tectonics, and continues with a brand new Deep Time Machine. The experience includes brand new footage created in collaboration with Our Dynamic Earth and the National Space Centre Creative which offers the chance to witness the development of the universe from the Big Bang through to early Earth. Each gallery is completely different and ranges from interactive exhibits to the impression of travelling through time.
Continuing your journey, you will fly across glaciers, feel the Earth move beneath your feet and experience the chill of polar ice. All this before embarking on a 4DVENTURE across the globe before you crash land in a tropical rainforest.
Throughout the year you will also witness spectacular 360 degree films in our ShowDome, the only one of it's kind in Scotland.
