Our Dynamic Earth

Our Dynamic Earth explains the history of the earth using interactive displays that allow visitors to explore the scientific forces that shaped and transformed the planet. From the instant you arrive at the striking building, which consists of a steel tent-like membrane stretched over a steel base structure; it is clear that you are in for an unforgettable technological journey.

After entering, board a time machine that ushers you back 15,000 million years while historical events like the age of the dinosaurs and the dawn of man pass before your eyes. Upon exiting the time machine, visit the Restless Earth–a volcanic landscape where the earth shakes as the smell of smoke and sulphur fills the room. For more adventures, take a 4D virtual helicopter on a thrilling ride through many of the earth’s diverse ecosystems, such as the Arctic and a tropical rainforest.

After fully exploring the earth’s above-ground attractions, dive beneath the sea in a submarine for a trip through the planet’s underwater environment where various aquatic landscapes can be viewed through the submarine’s portholes. Once you emerge from the ocean, finish your journey in a state-of-the-art digital planetarium show that showcases far-off galaxies and gives you a close-up view of the stars.
