Fabulous Festive Activities this winter at Dynamic Earth!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and we have some “out of this world” fun in store for you this festive season!  There’s so much going on at Dynamic Earth over the next few weeks, we’ve got ‘snow’ idea how to pack it all into just one blog post!!

Our Christmas party nights are almost sold out now – we do still have a small selection of tables available, so if you want to arrange a last-minute night out, then why not get in touch and our Events Elves will advise of availability!  By night, Dynamic Earth is transformed into a stunning & unique party venue – enjoy fizz on arrival, followed by a glittering gala dinner with all the festive trimmings.  Then dance the night away with your friends and colleagues to the latest & greatest hits (plus all your festive favourites!) in our Disc-O-Zone.  It’s sure to be an unforgettable evening!  For more information on availability & prices just get in touch via email christmas@dynamicearth.co.uk or call 0131 523 1292


And have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  Are you looking for a distinctive and exciting gift for that special someone in your life?  Then look no further than our Natural Selection Gift Shop!  We are holding an extra special festive shopping weekend from the 30th November to 1st December for all our amazing visitors – come along and see our extensive range of unique goodies, we have everything from fun stocking fillers & science kits,  to books, cuddly toys, games, fossils and jewellery.  We will be offering 10% off EVERYTHING in store, and an exclusive 20% discount for our Explorer Pass holders.  There will be music & mince pies, plus a fantastic festive competition with exciting prizes to be won. And remember, you don’t have to tour to shop – Natural Selection is located just down the steps behind the Ticket Desk.  Come along and let our friendly staff help you find that perfect present. 

Or if you’d prefer to give the gift of an experience this Christmas, then we have you covered for that too!  We are offering an awesome discount on our attraction day tickets as part of the Black Friday promotion weekend – look out for these deals on our website & social media pages!!  There is no expiry date, just turn up and exchange the vouchers at our Ticket Desk when you choose to visit.  We also have a selection of gift vouchers which can be personalised with your own message, just email enquiries@dynamicearth.co.uk for more information!

Our Food Chain Café team are getting in on the Christmas fun too – after all the excitement of time travelling through the universe, why not reward yourself with one of our extra-special Christmas treats?  We have a delicious selection of limited-edition drinks to choose from – Gingerbread latte, Spiced Pumpkin latte, Black Forest mocha or Jaffa hot chocolate, plus candy canes and gingerbread reindeers!  We even have a cool selection of reusable water bottles, coffee cups, milk bottles and festive baubles, so you can do some Christmas shopping while you’re at it!  We will also be serving our usual fantastic selection of hot & cold food, soup, baked potatoes, and sweet treats.  The perfect winter warmer - whether you have been visiting Dynamic Earth or hiking Arthur’s Seat, pop in and see us!



We have lots of fun for all our families too – end 2019 with a bang and blast off into the New Year with the launch of our “Destination Space” programme! Explore the universe through explosive demos, fun interactive activities and hands-on crafts. Discover how satellites can be used for everything from weather predictions, to GPS-tracking pirates! Explore the surface of Mars using Lego rovers and Virtual Reality, and even learn how space telescopes can see back in time using amazing infrared technology. Guaranteed to leave you feeling inspired by our incredible universe and the scientists who help uncover its secrets!  All activities are drop-in from 10am-4pm and free with admission to Dynamic Earth – see our What’s On Guide for the dates "Destination Space" will be running over the school Christmas holidays.

Last but by no means least, we have our next run of our evening Dome Nights coming up in January!  We have 2 very different shows for you to choose from, depending on your musical tastes!  You can experience the iconic sounds inspired by the legendary Pink Floyd album in our” Dark Side of the Moon” feature, or, if classical is more your thing, why not come along and be wowed by our presentation of Gustav Holst’s Planets 360?  Both of these awe-inspiring soundtracks are accompanied by spectacular visual art projected on the Dome above your head – it’s an immersive musical sensation that you won’t want to miss!   Running for selected dates throughout January, click here for times and to book your tickets!


Please note that we will be operating our Seasonal Opening Hours  over the winter period – remember to check our website before you visit!  We look forward to seeing you for some brrrrrr-illiant family fun this winter!
