10th – 18th February 2024

WHY SPEND YOUR FEBRUARY HALF-TERM AT DYNAMIC EARTH?

Family travelling in the Dynamic Earth time machine on the Dynamic Earth tour.

Join us for an out of this world adventure this February half-term in Edinburgh! You’ll take a journey through time and space on our interactive tour, exploring the evolution of our planet and the nature of our current earth. Experience an earth-shaking volcano, a deep dive into the world’s oceans, and the icy chill of the polar regions when you come face to face with a real iceberg.

Say hello to our Dynamic Earth team (and your inner scientist) with our free family activities exploring penguins, satellites and how they connect. Learn all you need to know about space, planets and the people who study them in our Meet The Astronomer live talks. It’s a day out for the family that’s sure to make you say “Wow!”

WHAT’S ON?

This February half-term, our family friendly activities will help you to discover your inner scientist! From our Dynamic Earth tour, to family activities run by our friendly science engagement team.
