The staff here are wonderful but they really didn't help us when we asked about fees. Apparently the only "fee" areas are the planetarium and the butterfly exhibit. We did pay to go into the butterfly exhibit (by accident) and found it fairly interesting. Not...More

Really comprehensive look at all sorts of things - was surprised by the amount of items in a really well laid out floor plan. Was great to have the interconnecting galleries to follow.

I'd heard that the Otago Museum is free and well worth a visit and that you can spend hours there but we didn't have that long and decided to concentrate on the butterflies. There is a $10 per adult admission fee for this part of...More

Probus ladies had an afternoon at the Museum, going to the planetarium show to look at the stars. It was amazing and so much information. After afterwards a look around the area and a lovely coffee and cake from the café. A very nice afternoon.
