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.

“A geographers dream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

This is an excellent attraction for adults and children alike. I went on my own and as a 29 year male traveling alone still had loads of fun.

Exhibits are extremely accessible and interactive. Geographical and geological concepts are explained in a fun and engaging way. Most staff were informative and knowledgeable.

Definetly a must see if you want to do something off the usual tourist trail in Edinburgh.

“Family Outing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Before booking to go to Dynamic Earth we read many of the reviews good and bad, we were unsure if it would be good or not but we went ahead anyway. We went with 5 children aged 11 to 17, we had a fantastic time. We found it very interesting and educational, at no time were the kids bored or not entertained. We would definitely go again, but perhaps in a few years time when it'll all seem like new again!

“Enjoyed every minute”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Something for all ages We as an older couple went with no children and still enjoyed it. Well laid out and different from normal science museums would definitely go again and recommend. Half a day would be long enough I think depending on whether you do interactive activities or not

This is great value for money and a great family day out we loved it. It is right in the centre of town so can go explore when you are finished.
