About The Shop

Otago Museum Shop is part of Otago Museum. Unlike many other institutions, Otago Museum is a charitable trust and must generate 50% of its operating costs. One way we do this is through selling products at our Shop.

Your purchases allow us to do great things for our community.

  • Care for the 1.5 million objects and taoka inside these walls and entrusted to us.
  • Educate around 5000 children annually with free programmes in our galleries available to every school in Otago.
  • Offer free science outreach in Dunedin as well as to some of the most remote rural communities in New Zealand.
  • Conduct cutting edge research right here in Otago. Like excavating moa footprints, discovering new species, and collaborating with NASA scientists.

Every dollar you spend here does really good things in Dunedin, Otago, and New Zealand. Thank you.
