Otago Museum

Join the OM team outside the Museum for a day of hands-on, deep sea-inspired science explorations and lots more.

Learn how oceans absorb heat from the atmosphere, discover more about the impact of global warming, see demonstrations of acidification of the ocean, hear about density and just what happens when salty water meets fresh.

Check out marine specimens under microscopes in Lab in a Box, or get up close to marine flora and fauna at the Marine Studies Aqua Van and touch tank.

There’s plenty to do inside the Museum too!

Get crafty at the Ocean Explorers Makerspace tables: make a paper squid plane, create an Anglerfish shadow puppet, or challenge yourself with a deep sea inspired thaumatrope.

Strike a pose at the selfie station, or take the plunge and explore deep into the Ocean Explorers gallery trail.

Otago Museum Reserve (paved area) and Atrium Level 1.
