Dynamic Earth

Dynamic Earth is a five star visitor experience which invites you to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. It features a series of interactive exhibits, state of the art technology and even a 4D encounter in which you will feel the heat of a bubbling volcano, face the chill of polar ice and fly across the globe before crash landing in a tropical rainforest.

Dynamic Earth is also home to Scotland’s only 360 degree full dome film theatre and shows a variety of films throughout the year.
