Tūhura is New Zealand’s biggest science centre!
A Tropical Forest with exotic butterflies, waterfall of over 5-metres, and a sky bridge. Kept to the humidity and warmth of a tropical rainforest, this is the hottest place in Dunedin.
A three-storey indoor slide, a bike-riding skeleton, and 43 other hands-on interactives awaken wonder, curiosity, and reveal the science in everything that surrounds us.
The only bicultural science centre in the world, telling the Kai Tahu creation story and integrating art with science.
Tūhura Otago Community Trust Science Centre is a place to discover, learn, and play.
You can also combine your science centre experience with a planetarium show with our special Tūhura combo deals.
