Dynamic Earth

Located directly between the Scottish Parliament Building and Arthur’s Seat, Dynamic Earth presents a linear journey through the creation of the Earth, from the Big Bang to the present day. Exhibitions make use of sounds, smell and visuals to make the experience as real as possible, in addition to interactive exhibits. With volcanoes erupting beneath your feet, a tropical rainstorm pouring down, earthquakes and tidal waves at every turn, the history of the Earth has never been more interesting. The popular tourist attraction also holds gala dinners, conferences and weddings while its unique 360 degree cinema (the only one in Edinburgh) often has space-themed screenings.
