North Otago Museum

The North Otago Museum collects and showcases a variety of artefacts and objects that tell the various natural, cultural, agricultural and industrial stories of the Waitaki District.

Where there are riches there are people; and where there are people, stories flow. From early Maori occupation around the Waitaki River mouth, European settlement by whalers and runholders through to the discovery of gold and the wool and meat industries which led to the development of Oamaru as a significant port town; there is plenty of history to take in at the North Otago Museum.
