Developed by the Gibson Group New Zealand media company in Wellington, the Otago Museum Beautiful Science gallery reveals a new way of seeing Otago.

It allows visitors to explore the landscapes, seasons and stories of Otago through 12 super-sized immersive screens and laser-activated technology.

Visitors can use laser beams to direct their exploration of the multi-layered digital canvases, scrolling through and digging down into the videos and images to guide their experience.

The gallery contains 150 multimedia stories and immersive moments, with data and media contributed by the Otago Daily Times, NHNZ, MetService, the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Department of Conservation and many other organisations, institutions and individuals.
