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.

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 :-)

“A very good place to visit in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I thought at £40 for the family it was a little bit dear, but it was very good. Lots oif things for the children to see and do, and some good shows there as well, like the 4D flight trip!

We got there around 1000 and left at around 1300, and we had pretty much done most of it by then.

The one thing we did miss was the car park, it's under the museum, we drove around a bit before we found it. It's also not very big, so would imagine if you arrive after 1100 you may struggle to get a space.

But overall, worth the money and the effort!!
