L-O-V-E it! You can travel back to the beginning of time! Fell the ground shake beneath your feet! Get your hands on a real iceberg and watch a space-tastic movie at the Show done!

Although slightly expensive, I would thoroughly recommend Dynamic Earth to anyone. Very educational, family-orientated, and pertinent to Edinburgh. I have been over 4 times and it never fails to disappoint.
