Our Dynamic Earth

Situated in Holyrood Park at the foot of the Royal Mile and only a short stroll away from 123 High Street, Our Dynamic Earth has become one of Edinburgh’s major attractions since its opening in 1999.

Utilising constantly updated technology, Our Dynamic Earth will take you on a mesmerising journey through planet Earth’s past, present and potential future with a stunning array of interactive exhibits including unforgettable 3D and 4D visual experiences that put you right at the heart of the action. Witness the creation of the Earth after the Big Bang. Come face-to-face with a roaring dinosaur. Feel the overpowering heat of a tropical jungle or soar over ice age glaciers. Take a front row seat on the tip of an iceberg to marvel at the magical night sky display of the Aurora Borealis.

Constantly visited by parties of schoolchildren for its intrinsic educational value, discovering the fascinating world of Our Dynamic Earth is always an exciting, engaging fun experience for visitors from any age group. Over the years, it has also become one of Edinburgh’s premier destinations for business meetings and conferences … and, without doubt, the No. 1 venue for the glitziest parties in town!
