This history museum was established more than a century ago to tell the story of the first European settlers in Dunedin and Otago. It was later expanded to include other migrants to the region, as well as the native Maori people and all of their cultural achievements. Thousands of artifacts, photographs, costumes and more are displayed in absorbing interactive exhibits. In the transport section, you'll see vintage vehicles and get the chance to board a trolley, straddle a penny-farthing bicycle and squeeze into steerage class on a ship. The museum is open daily; admission is free except for special exhibitions.
