Dunedin Gasworks Museum 

Sun 12-4pm

Learn the secrets of steel!

A working museum that tells the story of New Zealand’s oldest gasworks. The Dunedin Gasworks Museum is part of the now closed Dunedin Gasworks which was New Zealand’s first and last gasworks, operating from 1863 until 1987. It is one of only three known preserved gasworks museums in the world. This is a significant local and world heritage site. Sign up for blacksmithing classes. The museum is keeping a 3,500 year old skill relevant and useful, with an Irish blacksmith and troop of apprentices now training new blacksmiths every month. Come down and learn the secrets of steel! They forge, they party, they laugh, they get big blisters!
