Otago Museum shares the natural, cultural, and scientific stories of Otago, Aotearoa New Zealand and the world.
We began as a small collection of rocks in 1868. Over 150 years, our collections and purpose have evolved, growing to more than 1.5 million objects available for research and examination as well as for display in public galleries and exhibitions. Knowledge has the power to break down barriers, inspire change and spark creativity so we use these objects to tell our visitors more about the world – from here in Dunedin to deep space, from millions of years ago to envelope-pushing research.
Alongside our exhibition galleries, Otago Museum hosts the Tūhura Otago Community Trust Science Centre and the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium. Tūhura’s 45 interactive exhibits and three storey Tropical Forest butterfly enclosure, together with the planetarium’s fully immersive digital experience, brings science to life for our visitors.
