‘This was so educational and fun this is great value for money and the family members of all ages loved it. Family day out that will not fail to keep all ages entertained.’
– DYNAMIC EARTH TRIPADVISOR REVIEW
A Millennium Project
Dynamic Earth was officially opened in 1999 by Queen Elizabeth II. The Millennium Commission partly funded the project, as part of its celebrations of the turning of the new millennium. The museum’s distinctive modern design, with smooth curves and pointed masts, contrasts with its rocky setting, sitting in the shadows of Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags. This location recognises Scottish geologist and naturalist, James Hutton, who studied the rocks here in the 18th century and was known as the father of modern geology.

The science museum hosts special events and workshops and promotes public engagement. Making science fun and accessible. So, keep an eye on what’s coming up over the next few months, from family events to evening experiences. Also, check the Planetarium schedule to find out what films are showing.
