Owner description: A visit to Dynamic Earth is like nothing else on Earth. It's a chance to experience the primeval forces of nature as they shaped our planet, to journey through space and time and even go on a 4DVENTURE around the world. You'll be embarking on the interactive adventure of a lifetime - the lifetime of our planet. As if this wasn't enough, Dynamic Earth is home to Scotland's only 360 degree full dome film theatre. We have a variety of films showing throughout the year.

“Travel back in time.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

You get into the lift at the start and begin your journey travelling back millions of years!
A guide takes you through each section with one of the highlights being the real glacier in the middle of the exhibit that you can touch. The 4D show was very good and the final show in the dome was fun.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Really good fun! What a super idea to engage kids with science - astronomy and geology - enough facts to keep a 13 year old interested, too!

“kids thought it was brill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

A little expensive but very educational and well executed. lots of school parties around so choose your time carefully! Had the effect of turning my little girl off from a career of space travel and the life of an astronaut :-)
