Dunedin Gasworks Museum

The Dunedin Gasworks Museum is located in the Edwardian engine house and boiler house from the old Dunedin Gasworks (1863-1987). The prize exhibits are the stationary steam engines that once pumped gas around Dunedin. Visitors are introduced to the lost art of making gas from coal in an authentic Edwardian industrial complex. Other themes explored include social history and steam technology. There are also displays of domestic gas appliances.The science of coal gas production is almost forgotten, but was once vital to most major cities. This museum reintroduces that science.
