Otago Museum and the University of Otago

Otago Museum

Otago Museum Logo6

Overlooking the Museum Reserve, the Otago Museum shares the natural, cultural and scientific stories of Otago, Aotearoa New Zealand and the world. The Museum will be 150 years old in 2018, although many of the items in our collection are far older. Our collection includes over 1.5 million objects, which come from around the globe. 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 – through galleries, exhibitions, displays, tours and talks.
