Just beyond the Balclutha Bridge this museum has extensive collections on display of domestic and industrial heritage reflecting 150 years of pioneer endeavor on the fertile plains and river deltas of South Otago.

The artefacts housed in the museums machinery room illustrate industries on the lower Clutha River and the coastline as far the Nugget Point Lighthouse, the horizon of the Catlins.

The stories throughout our corridors and rooms are all centered around our digital archive of photographs, movies and sounds.

Unique collections of note include the Pottery heritage of Benhar and the unique coastal fishing history of Kaka Point.
Research facilities are available.
