Every year, Dynamic Earth invites charities and community groups from across Scotland to apply for our Community Golden Ticket. We support children & adults from a variety of backgrounds and enable them to have free access to our centre when they may not normally be able to, for lots of different reasons.
Situated in the heart of Edinburgh at the foot of an ancient volcano, Dynamic Earth is the only centre of its kind dedicated to telling the story of planet Earth. Begin your journey by travelling back to the beginning of time to witness the Big Bang, explore how the Earth was formed and shaped over millions of years, and travel through the different biomes of our planet. Enter 13 interactive and fully immersive galleries which will explore different stages in the journey of Planet Earth. You can also experience our ShowDome - packed with stunning high-definition 360° digital fulldome technology and explosive surround-sound, our ShowDome invites you into an immersive cinema experience like no other. If your charity or community group are lucky enough to get a Golden Ticket, then you can experience all of this!!
Each ticket is valid for one full year and there are no fixed criteria on the nature of the groups who can qualify for a Golden Ticket. Dynamic Earth aims to be as inclusive as possible to all our visitors - we are fully wheelchair accessible and further information on our facilities can be found in our access statement.
The Community Golden Ticket will admit up to 12 people free of charge per visit, and groups will also be entitled to the following fantastic benefits:
- Unlimited free entry to our attraction tour
- Unlimited access to our 360’ ShowDome Cinema
- 20% discount in our Food Chain Café
- 15% Discount in our Natural Selection Gift Shop
Bookings must be made in advance and visits can only take place when Dynamic Earth is open to the public.
