COMING TO OTAGO MUSUEM!
The wonderful Wild Dunedin festival is coming to Otago Museum this April. With wild films at the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium, wild tropics demos in Tūhura's Tropical Forest, wild trails and makerspaces, as well as other talks and events there is lots on.
An annual favourite, Wildlife ER, is back for the festival. Bring your child with their toy animal to the Museum and learn how to bandage injuries with the team from the Dunedin Wildlife Hospital.
