Toitu Otago Settlers Museum Dunedin
#1 of 68 Museums in Otago Region
A disclaimer-I'm a historian and want to congratulate Dunedin, and the staff for creating one of the most interesting and quality local museums I've had to pleasure to visit.
This one of the best museums I have visited and it's free but well laid out and shows the history of both Maori life and development of NZ A must visit

Otago Museum Dunedin
#3 of 68 Museums in Otago Region
We love museums and have visited many in our native Ireland and across Europe - but for such a "young" country the Otago museum is seriously impressive!
We visited many museums in NZ, both North and South Island, and we can see in Otago Museum new things, other explications about Maori.

The Lost Gypsy Gallery Papatowai

You can touch and actually the exhibition is very different from any museum I visited in the past.
My husband described this place as the best museum/gallery he's ever been to and I cannot agree more!
Lakes District Museum & Art Gallery Arrowtown
#5 of 68 Museums in Otago Region
... logical and easy to follow, there are a lot of hands on exhibits and a lot of things preserved from the gold rush hey day, with most things original rather than recreated as is now the case with many big museums.
Our son loves museums and he found this one very interesting.
Steampunk HQ Oamaru
#6 of 68 Museums in Otago Region
It's $10 per adult to enter which I find quite reasonable compared to other museums/galleries charge to enter.
The museum was edgy, cool, fun and interesting for all of us and we spent an hour exploring the exhibits and having fun interacting in the space.
National Transport and Toy Museum Wanaka
#7 of 68 Museums in Otago Region
One of the best museums we have ever been to, old toys, meccano kits and models, lego, lots of cars (not all American thank goodness).
I've seen car museums before but this one is enormous.

Really close to the steam punk museum, this arty little gallery store is eccentric and surreal.
Is it a gallery, a museum or just a curio shop?
