A bold design, Toitu is now an iconic building not far from Dunedin's city centre. Its brief covers the territory of the old Otago Province, that is, New Zealand from the Waitaki River south. It is New Zealand's oldest and most extensive history museum and is located in the heart of the city close to other prominent buildings such as the Dunedin Railway Station, some 500 metres from the city centre (The Octagon).
Designed by architect Robert Tong in conjunction with Baker Garden architects and built by Lund McIntyre Construction.
