The Dunedin Museum of Natural Mystery is a small private Museum very close to the center of the city with accommodation for singles or couples. The Museum is only open to the public on Fridays (12pm-5pm) and weekends ( 10am-5pm) but guests can stay any night of the week. Guests have their own area at the back of the house. Note that the occasional Museum visitor may want to use the toilet during Museum opening hours and the owner might want to fill up his kettle in the kitchen.

The space
This is a real working Museum containing both skulls and early examples of African and Pacific art. If you are easily frightened this listing might not be for you but I promise the house is NOT haunted! Guests have their own private room with a queen size bed and a TV monitor with WIFI and Netflix provided. The recently renovated bathroom has a bath/shower and gas hot water. The kitchen has a fridge, oven and microwave. As stated above guests have their own area at the back of the house but during Museum hours the occasional guest may use the toilet and the staff might use the kitchen to make a cup of tea.

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole building including the Museum (apart from the owner's private room.) Guests can park in the drive-way of the house.

Other things to note
The Museum is based in a Victorian villa dating from the 1870's. It has a garden and a garage where the owner has his art studio. Guests are welcome to use the garden. There are student flats close by. Students can occasionally have loud parties during orientation and capping weeks.
