Discovery World Tropical Forest

Kids and adults alike will switch on to science in this fully interactive space inside the Otago Museum. Warp yourself with our trick mirror, be in a bubble, stamp out a tune on the giant foot-piano, challenge your friends to relax with our mindball challenge and experiment with electricity in the plasma room!

Then enter the Tropical Forest - a lush, living tropical environment. Come face to face with hundreds of beautiful, live exotic butterflies as well as other hot-weather-happy inhabitants, including birds, fish, turtles and geckos.
