Tūhura Tropical Forest

A lush, living gallery

Tūhura’s Tropical Forest is the only three-tier live butterfly experience in Australasia! 
At around 28 degrees and 75% humidity year-round, it’s warm and welcoming. 

Encounter exotic butterflies, giant stick insects, tarantulas, terrapins and other rainforest dwellers –  it’s a world away but right here in Dunedin. 

Buy your Tūhura science centre tickets at the Otago Museum Shop.
