Steampunk HQ, Oamaru

4.2
#1 of 8 in Museums in Oamaru
Fantastical machines come to life at Steampunk HQ, a complex dedicated to the popular world of Victorian-infused alternative history and artwork. Housed within a real Victorian building, the headquarters feature a wide array of the part-retro, part-futuristic hardware and machinery so iconic of the Steampunk genre. Wander the interior sections, marveling at the collection of clocks, artwork, sculptures, and vehicles that make for a strange combination of sci-fi and historical fiction. You'll have a hard time missing premier creations like imagined Victorian-era rockets, fanciful tractors, and the fire-spewing, drill-tipped, demonic-looking steam locomotive out front. Work out when and for how long to visit Steampunk HQ and other Oamaru attractions using our handy Oamaru day trip site.

  • What an awesome little museum in a cool Victorian town. Amazing sculptures. It was like walking through a Mad Max set. Definitely check it out if you can!
