Portobello Otago Peninsula Museum

Victory Beach, Otago Peninsula @Hiking the World

Otago Peninsula Museum was started by local people in 1974, with a small room in the Portobello Coronation Hall used to display photographs and historical items. Now it is a regional collection worth the time of avid heritage trail followers. A gem of a museum that feels personal with touch of entering someone’s home for a look at the past.  Entirely funded and supported by the volunteers from the local community.


  • Open Sunday afternoons from 12.30-3.30pm (staffed by volunteers)
  • Private viewing email the museum at
  • Admission donation requested

TIP: Combine a trip to Portobello museum with a visit to Royal Albatross Centre. Do not forget to check out Portobello’s happy hens shop. Happy hens are a cheerful ambassador for the Otago Peninsula as well as gifts that are unique to Otago.
