Otago Museum information
Explores Otago’s cultural and physical past and present, from geology and dinosaurs to the modern day. The Tangata Whenua Maori gallery houses an impressive waka taua (war canoe), wonderfully worn old carvings and some lovely pounamu (greenstone) works. If you’ve already been out on the peninsula admiring penguins and albatrosses, the museum’s wildlife collection will also fascinate. Join themed guided tours ($12, see website for times and themes). Children can explore at the hands-on Discovery World (adult/child/family $10/5/25). Check the website for always-excellent temporary exhibitions and special gallery talks.
