Achieving Our Mission

Our Mission

DHM’s mission – to be the primary destination for discovering and fostering connections to Dunedin’s rich history – is the cornerstone of the museum’s exhibits, programs, events, educational initiatives, and collections that contribute to enhancing community pride.

Our Vision

We envision a future where every visitor who graces our museum is ignited with a life-long love for history – striving to create an environment where the echoes of the past resonate with each patron, leaving them inspired and connected to the rich tapestry of Dunedin’s history.


The Dunedin History Museum proudly announces the launch of the annual Making History Awards!

This initiative is a tribute to the outstanding achievements of individuals and companies who have left their mark on the vibrant community of Dunedin.
