Set in an original grain store that was built in 1882, and located within New Zealand’s most complete streetscape of Victorian commercial buildings, Whitestone City is a central heritage hub that offers interactive tours to explore Oamaru's Victorian past.
 

It's not a typical museum, at Whitestone City you can touch and try everything - it brings history to life!

 

Come and dress up like Victorian ladies & gentlemen, play traditional games and ride on the only penny farthing carousel in New Zealand!

 

Live displays, video imaging and plenty of interaction will immerse visitors in a living, breathing past.

They loved it!

“We had a fabulous time visiting the Whitestone City museum. It was an absolute pleasure to spend a couple of hours here reliving times of long ago and learning the history of Oamaru through the masterful storytelling of the ladies who run the museum.”
