The public has responded "very positively" to the recent redevelopment of the Otago Museum's much-loved Animal Attic, museum organisers say.
A report tabled at a recent Otago Museum Trust Board meeting noted the Animal Attic had reopened in June after undergoing a refreshment, which had cost about $130,000.
All the attraction's specimens had been fully catalogued in the collection database, with condition reporting and photographs.
New carpet had also been laid and lighting improved.
A conservator from Australian-based International Conservation Services had also been contracted to change painted bases on many of the bird mounts to bases more in keeping with the style of the gallery.
