Host an event with a difference at the Otago Museum. Treat your guests to a star-studded night in Tūhura, the world-leading science engagement complex which includes the Beautiful Science Gallery and Perpetual Guardian Planetarium. Celebrate your marriage surrounded by exotic butterflies in the lush beauty of the Tropical Forest or welcome conference delegates in the Hutton Theatre or one of the stunning Atrium spaces.
The Museum's venues are versatile and elegant, with modern purpose-built theatres, meeting rooms and public areas offering ideal spaces for any business function or social gathering. Whether you require theatre-style seating for 230, a private boardroom for ten or a social space for 800 to entertain in style, the Museum can provide the venue and first-rate service.
A range of flexible options is available, including delicious catering and equipment hire. Our professional Venues team pays attention to the small details that make all the difference in ensuring your event is memorable and runs smoothly.
The Otago Museum is situated in the heart of Dunedin’s vibrant tertiary sector, close to motel and hotel accommodation, only a few minutes' walk from the city centre.
