The excellent Otago Museum features well presented displays in three major categories: culture, science and natural history. The cultural displays include Maori and Pacific Island artefacts plus a maritime gallery and archaeological treasures from around the world. The natural history section features an animal attic with a huge collection of specimens plus unique displays about extinct birds such as the laughing owl and the massive moa. Discovery World, as the science area is known, has lots of hands-on exhibits such as a water wheel and an indoor waterfall.

    Good cafe. Free WiFi. My daughter (3yrs) likes the Moa exhibit, and the activity table on the first floor. The on street parking is a pain and most of the kids stuff is pay

    Butterflies. Almost too many, if that's possible.
