Planetarium

For an out of this world experience, look no further than Edinburgh’s only large-scale planetarium, with a newly upgraded, state-of-the-art projection system at Dynamic Earth.

Have you ever wondered how astronauts see Earth from the International Space Station? Or take a trip to Jupiter or Saturn to explore other than our own? Have you ever looked up at the night sky and thought ‘WOW, I wonder just how many there are in space?

Take a journey with your pupils beyond Earth with our expert team of astronomers and science communicators in a live - presenter-led and curriculum linked - Planetarium show. As well as live shows, Dynamic Earth offers a range of amazing movies exploring outer space, and even Supervolcanoes!

Our planetarium provides a fantastic introduction for pupils in a range of space and topical sciences experiences and outcomes, or is great way to compliment and reinforce prior learning from your classroom or from one of our space workshop sessions. Either way, our planetarium offers a unique and memorable way of exploring the night sky and the wider universe!
