Seven free galleries showcase the fascinating and the unique, the biggest and the best. Catch a glimpse of daily life in an early Southern Māori coastal village, see our comprehensive collection of articulated moa skeletons or a suit of armour worn by a Kiribati warrior. Learn about various world currencies from gold, to feathers and coins and step back in time to the Victorian Animal Attic to explore this fascinating cabinet of curiosities. Tūhura - New Zealand’s biggest science center - is a Dunedin must do. With over 45 hands-on interactives, including a giant DNA-inspired helical slide, and a three-tier Tropical Forest full of exotic butterflies, waterfall of over 5-metres, and a sky bridge - this is the hottest place around.
