Our Dynamic Earth - Review

Inaugurated in 1999, this steel and glass science centre is easily accessible. It’s mainly a children’s attraction, separated into zones (volcanos, earthquakes, rainforests, ice age etc), designed to educate kids about the nature of our planet. The litte ones find the $D cinema and the Dome show especially entrancing. The staff is knowledgable and highly welcoming of all guests.

Our Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh Reviews

  • I went to Dynamic Earth as part of a conference and the staff and location were magnificent. If you ever have the opportunity to host an event at this location I cannot recommend it highly enough. The displays at Dynamic Earth are primarily aimed at children between 7-13 and they are full of information and interactivity. The venue also sits next to the beautiful Holyrood Park, Arthur's Seat and the Scottish Parliament.

  • Brilliant for adults and kids alike. Dynamic Earth is an interactive journey through time focusing on how the earth formed and has changed over the past few billion years. It manages that monumental task in a way that's informative and enjoyable for all ages. It's relatively expensive, but it's not a normal 'museum' experience. You get taken on a journey through time via a series of shows and screenings, plus some interactive spaces. There are regular shows in the 360 degree ShowDome, which are excellent. You can easily spend 3-4 hours here (or do it more quickly if you want), and I was surprised to come away thinking that it was good value, given the cost. The cafe is very good, with decent food at a decent price. The gift shop is overpriced but on a par with others. Excellent place to take children, especially those over 7 years old. Highly recommended.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the journey of earth. Possibly the most amazing and technologically advance museums I've ever seen until now (definitely better than science museum in London so far). Must must visit for nerds and earth lovers!!

  • Amazing experience for kids. Can be a little scary for small ones but they provide over ear protectors at reception if you need (they're free). There's lots to learn and do, and the effects are v cool! The 3D film at the end is great and the Planetarium is awesome too.
