Centre looks to the future

Our Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh has unveiled two new galleries which will guarantee its place as the ‘mustsee’ experience of the summer.

The exhibits, FutureDome and Earthscape Scotland represent a combined investment of almost £2 million.

Earthscape Scotland is a free outdoor gallery tracing Scotland’s unique geological landscape, while the 75-seat FutureDome brings together 360º dome projection, revolving platforms and visitor interaction. It has been billed as a cross between Dr Who and Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Commenting on the new attractions, Dr Stuart Munro, Our Dynamic Earth scientific director, said: “We are really excited about these two new exhibitions which will not only attract new visitors to Our Dynamic Earth, but will also provide a significant impetus for people who have been before to come back and experience something new.”
