February half-term is rapidly approaching - what are your plans for keeping the kids amused?! Why not bring them along to Dynamic Earth, where we will be travelling back to prehistoric times and delving into the world of the dinosaurs……!
Fabulous Fossil February is taking place from the 9th to 17th of February and includes loads of fun, family drop-in activities. Your wee explorers can become paleontologists themselves and dig for ancient Dino bones in our sand boxes, and examine real fossils that are more than 65 million years old! There will be lots of crafts and colouring in activities too, you can even make your own dinosaur to take home with you as a souvenir of your visit to Dynamic Earth! Our special guests from the Scottish Mineral & Lapidary Club will also be joining us to showcase their amazing collection of stunning rocks, minerals and crystals, which are sure to mesmerise visitors old and young.
The ever-popular Design-o-Saur is also making a return for the holidays, where you will have the chance to create your own virtual prehistoric pal on our IPads. Choose your dinosaur’s species, colour and patterns and then watch as we bring them to life before your very eyes using clever mixed-reality technology! You can even snap a selfie with your roar-some creation, but be quick, as your dinosaur might decide to bite back!
And all of this is in addition to our amazing attraction tour and Show Dome! A visit to Dynamic Earth is like nothing else on Earth – it is a journey telling the story of our planet from the Big Bang to the present day. You will travel back millions of years in our Time Machine, and experience the primeval forces of nature in our immersive and interactive galleries – encountering everything from earthquakes to icebergs along the way! You can also experience one of Scotland’s only 360’ cinemas in our planetarium theatre, the Show Dome. With various film showing throughout the day, you can experience first-hand our digital full-dome technology and explosive surround-sound – check out the schedule to see which films are showing! You can purchase tickets online here and get a 10% discount too!
Our Food Chain Café will be open every day offering all sorts of delicious treats, from cakes & doughnuts to speciality teas & coffees, hot meals, sandwiches and Ice Blasts! You can also visit our Natural Selection Gift Shop and explore our amazing array of unusual gifts and souvenirs – you’re sure to find something that’s out of this world! Make sure to visit our Ocean Commotion soft play with your wee explorers too (best suited to kids under 7).
Fabulous Fossil February activities are running every day during the holidays from 10:00 – 16:00 and are FREE with your admission to Dynamic Earth. So if your little ones are fascinated by the history of dinosaurs and want to uncover their remains - or if they’d rather to bring one back to life themselves – they can do it all this half-term at Dynamic Earth!
