Otago Museum

Led by trained educators, Otago Museum's Explorers Club is fun, interactive, and engaging; not to mention that there is plenty of time to play in Tuhura Science Centre where children can take a bike-ride with a skeleton, zoom down the three-story slide and explore the Tropical Forest among hundreds of butterflies.

Each day is based on a theme, and there is an array of arts and science activities for each session. Your child will make amazing crafts, learn about new cultures, and discover how the world works. Book one day, or all. Sessions fill up quickly, so book now. We would love to see you again!
