Pixie Town

Each Christmas families and children young and old alike are invited to visit Pixie Town, which was acquired by the Otago Settlers Association for Toitū Otago Settlers Museum and is a beloved part of the Dunedin Christmas experience.

The OSA acquired some of the Pixie Town units when the DIC closed in the 1980s.  After restoration the units went in display for the first time in 2004 and immediately brought back to many memories for parents and grandparents who had enjoyed them in their childhood, and now enjoy introducing their children and grandchildren 

to these characters.  When Pixie Town first appeared in DIC Dunedin is not quite sure, but it formed part of the Christmas tradition for many families and with these units now installed at the museum it continues to do so.

The OSA is pleased to support Pixie Town as one of its ongoing projects.
