large_180127-43 (1)

Easter is set to be cracking at Edinburgh’s five-star attraction, Dynamic Earth this year, with a whole host of fun-filled “egg-speriences” that are both in and out of this world.

 From 31 March until 15 April, a ticket for Dynamic Earth will also include access to a string of exciting activities, which are guaranteed to entertain and inspire.

 Special events for the season include ‘Operation Earth’ (31 March, 6, 11, 12 & 13 April), a tie up with the Edinburgh International Science Festival, which sees youngsters transformed into doctors of the planet in an interactive family show; Meet the Expert days (4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 14 & 15 April), where scientists at the forefront of Polar research, marine life and forestry will be on hand to share stories of what it’s like to live in some of the most hostile environments on Earth, and demonstrate the fascinating technology involved in their jobs; plus, there will be plenty of outdoor activities, ready for the spring weather to finally arrive  – including ‘Wonderful Weather’ (9 & 10 April) where families can learn how to spot changes in nature and the skies to forecast the weather themselves.

 If this world is not enough, visitors can move further into the galaxy on 1 and 2 April, as the Cosmos Planetarium team will be taking lucky visitors on an amazing voyage of discovery to seek out extra-terrestrial life. Budding astronauts will need to fasten their seatbelts as they blast off from Mars and travel to the very outer reaches of the cosmos.

 Each event offers engaging and hands on activities and workshops, providing fun for all of the family. From taking part in food chain Jenga and becoming a drone pilot with Operation Earth, to exploring the city’s local outdoor spaces and looking for wildlife with Nature Detectives (2 & 3 April).

 With more taking place than can fit into the day, exclusive ‘after hours’ events will also be on offer over Easter, with Double Dome Nights (3, 4, 5, 12 and 13 April) providing a real full dome cinematic treat. Each night, Dynamic Earth will show a combination of two 30 minute movies from its library of spectacular 360 degree films – with popcorn and refreshments also available – to give a unique, immersive cinema experience.

 Commenting on this year’s jam-packed Easter programme, Eilidh Massie, marketing manager at Dynamic Earth, said: “We have something for everyone this Easter and we’re especially pleased to be offering the brand new Operation Earth programme. It has just the right mix of fun and engaging activities to encourage the whole family to get involved in solving some of the challenges currently facing our planet.

 “We’re also excited to welcome back the fantastic Double Dome Nights – it really is a cinema experience like no other. They’re always incredibly popular, so be sure to book your tickets in advance. We’ll have the popcorn ready!”

 In addition to the Easter programme, regular Dynamic Earth features include the ever-popular real iceberg, a bone-shaking earthquake and the Deep Time Machine which takes visitors billions of years back in time.

 The Easter activities will run from 31 March until 15 April. All daytime events are included with admission to the Dynamic Earth exhibition and free for Explorer Pass holders. For certain activities, advanced booking is required. Double Dome Night tickets cost £8 for adults, £5 for children/concessions and free for Explorer Pass holders. Pre-booking for these events is essential. More information on all the events and activities is available on the Dynamic Earth website: www.dynamicearth.co.uk
