The Regional Maritime Museum at Port Chalmers is the focal point for the social and maritime history of the small port town of Port Chalmers, Dunedin’s West Harbour area, and the Otago coast. Our permanent displays and temporary exhibitions open a window into the lives of the people of the region and their connection with the sea.

The Museum’s collections include items relating to the regional fishing industry, the Antarctic expeditions of Scott, Shackelton and Byrd, and the social history of Port Chalmers. The collection also comprises extensive holdings of photographs, archives and manuscripts. The Museum’s archives and research service are recognised as a significant regional information resource also used by national and international researchers.
