Our Dynamic Earth is a state-of-the-art science centre set against the dramatic backdrop of Arthur’s Seat & Salisbury Crags and next door to the Scottish Parliament Building in Holyrood. The distinctive white building, with it’s spiked and tented roof, was Edinburgh’s Millennium Landmark project and opened in 1999. This popular attraction is a geological visitors center which uses the latest technology to tell the history of planet Earth. Visitors are taken back in time in a ‘time machine’ to witness the Big Bang, followed by volcanic eruptions and earthquakes leading to the creation of the earth. All this is followed by the ice-age where visitors witness huge glacier formations before moving onto tropical rainstorms where the damp air s full of the sounds and smells of the jungle. The journey finishes in the Future Dome, which describes what the future of planet Earth might be, and how we can all help to make a difference to what lies ahead for our dynamic planet.
