“A unique museum of art, sound & light showing an altered universe set within an 1880's Grain Elevator building in Oamaru.”

Steampunk HQ, in the small southern coastal town of Oamaru, is New Zealand's premiere Steampunk experience. Feature retro-futuristic sci fi art, movies, sculpture, immersive light and sound experiences, it is fascinating for the whole family.

Steampunk is a quirky and fun genre of science fiction that features steam-powered technology. It is often set in an alternate, futuristic version of 19th century Victorian England. The Steampunk future is driven by unusual steam powered devices – the ‘world gone mad’ as Victorian people may have imagined it. Examples are machines like those in the writing of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, and in TV shows such as Dr. Who.

Showcasing the works of local artists, movies, light and sound displays and an amazing life size Steampunk engine, Steampunk HQ has many hidden curiosities and intriguing artifacts; there is always something new to discover. Oamaru is an ideal setting for Steampunk art and activities, given the wonderfully preserved and thriving Victorian buildings.
