Dunedin is New Zealand’s education capital. It is home to the country’s oldest university and one of the country’s largest polytechnics. It is also home to some of the most prestigious high schools in New Zealand. With so much emphasis on education, it is no surprise the city boasts 8 museums. These range from the internationally recognized Otago Museum to the Dunedin Museum of Natural Mystery which is a quirky private collection in artist and sculptor, Bruce Mahalski’s house. Filling three rooms in his central city villa, this little museum contains skulls, bones, biological curiosities, along with cultural art and artifacts which Bruce has collected over a lifetime. There is also a gallery displaying his own unique bone art and paintings. read more
