The Dunedin Gasworks is a volunteer-run museum based on the site of New Zealand's oldest gasworks, in South Dunedin. It is one of only three known preserved gasworks museums in the world, and is a significant local and world heritage site. Visitors can explore the Engine House, containing a number of Victorian steam pumping engines, and learn about the important role gas played in the lives of Dunedin people, from the gasworks' opening in the 1860s to its closure in the 1980s. The displays also tell the story of the domestic use of gas, and how gas was marketed to consumers. We are open on Sundays from 12 - 4pm.
