About this activity
Visit: Otago Museum, 419 Great King Street, Dunedin 9016 New Zealand

Find out what makes this Museum world-class! Navigate through our galleries discovering little-known wonders of early New Zealand culture and heritage.

In Tāngata Whenua gallery, catch a glimpse of daily life in an early Southern Māori coastal village, alongside an array of taoka (treasures) from a 17m waka taua (war canoe) to exquisitely crafted pounamu (greenstone).

Journey through Oceania to see a suit of armour worn by a Kiribati warrior or red feather currency from Santa Cruz. Step back in time to the Victorian-style Animal Attic to explore this fascinating cabinet of curiosities.

Discover the skeletons in our cupboard! Marvel at New Zealand’s largest fossil, the 7m long Shag Point plesiosaur, or the most comprehensive collection of articulated moa skeletons in the world. Amongst the thousands of exotic items and time-worn artefacts from ancient civilisations, see a 2,500-year-old Mummy from Thebes and learn how her face was reconstructed using CT scanning technology.

Join us to see these riches and hear their stories.
