Tūhura Science Centre, Otago Museum

Make sure Otago Museum is in the plan on your next trip to Dunedin!

The biggest science centre in New Zealand is at Otago Museum. There is a Tropical Forest with hundreds of exotic butterflies, an indoor waterfall, and many other rainforest creatures. Kept to the humidity and warmth of a tropical rainforest,  it’s the hottest place in Dunedin!

There is also a three-storey indoor slide, a bike-riding skeleton, and 43 other hands-on interactives to awaken wonder, curiosity and reveal the science in everything that surrounds us. You can grab a combo deal and combine your science centre experience with a show in the only 3D planetarium in Australasia. Live shows are running daily where you go on a journey to the stars, with some explosive science thrown in.
