The Museum has been collecting objects for over 150 years (although many of the items in their collection are far older) and includes over 1.5 million objects, which come from around the globe to tell visitors more about the world – from Dunedin to deep space, from millions of years ago to envelope-pushing research – through galleries, exhibitions, displays, tours and talks.
The Perpetual Guardian Planetarium, located in the Beautiful Science Gallery - the world’s first laser-activated, interactive digital gallery - boasts a 360° immersive theatre experience with daily shows suitable for the whole family.
Galleries and exhibitions are accessible by wheelchair and pram.
