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. The special exhibition is code and breakers, women in gaming. A wonderful programme of events. The after dark programme is genius and includes hot yoga with butterflies, a love island event, perfume making, planets and pints! All year round.
