As the Otago Museum prepares to mark its 150th anniversary this September, planning is well underway for a superlative exhibition to celebrate. Now Dunedin locals will have a chance to add their own memories to the eclectic collection over a century in the making.
Museum staff are calling for those who have stories to tell or pictures to share of their experience of the Otago Museum, from any time in the past century and a half.
Head of Design Craig Scott explains, “We’ve created space in the exhibition design so we can include our community’s stories – the community is after all an integral part of the Museum’s history and success. We’d like to hear from anyone who has a connection, whether from coming here as a child or from delving into our collections as a researcher.”
