About OSA

The Otago Settlers’ Association is made up of people who show their interest and pride in Otago’s past by supporting Toitū Otago Settlers Museum.

Early members – we began in 1898 with the establishment of a small museum to care for the treasures and documents of their colonial experience. We developed and greatly expanded our museum and archive for almost a century until in the 1990s we gifted it to Dunedin City. This enabled its further recent, dazzling development.

As well as supporting the Museum, our members enjoy special privileges in it and also participate in our own programme of friendly social events and talks focusing on our history and heritage.
