Want a night out that is a little different from the usual restaurant or bar? Come along and taste award-winning, boutique gins and take a look behind the scenes at fascinating curios from the collection.
We are partnering with the fabulous No. 8 Distillery for an evening you will remember. With four generations of distilling the bouquets range from horopito to hibiscus, these boutique gins are seriously good. You will enjoy a sophisticated evening sampling gin in Otago Museum’s beautiful Atriums, with excellent music, and canapés.
There will also be a rare tour of our Collections Stores. With over 1.5 million objects and taoka, the Stores are simply astounding. This area is usually only seen by visiting researchers, dignitaries, and media, and tonight our Collections team will guide you through the vast rooms in the bowels of the Museum that are very rarely opened to the public From objects of breathtaking beauty, to tiny insects and bones of majestic whales.
This will be an evening to tell your friends about.
