Otago Museum information
The centrepiece of this august institution is Southern Land, Southern People, showcasing 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) weapons, tools and jewellery.
Other major galleries include Pacific Cultures, People of the World (including the requisite mummy), Nature, Maritime and the Animal Attic . The hands-on Discovery World (adult/child $10/5) is mainly aimed at kids, although the tropical forest, filled with colourful live butterflies, is an all-ages treat.
Check the timing of the daily guided tours ($12) and free gallery talks on the website.
