Home SUPPORT US
The Dunedin Gasworks Museum is very appreciative of your support.
We value each and every donation made, large or small. We are an enthusiatic and committed group, who volunteer many hours to maintaining this industrial heritage site. We are proud of the endorsement of Sir Neil Cossons, a world leader in industrial heritage assessment, that our museum is "the best example of a museum with working gasworks machinery in the World".
Every donation contributes to our ability to preserve the history and tell the story of gas production.
Barry Clarke: Chairperson Dunedin Gaworks Museum Trust
Our boiler has recently been replaced and although the Dunedin City Council has given us a grant to manage the shortfall in expenses this needs to be repaid in the near future. This is a major financial burden for the Trust
Our gasholder is legless as one of the legs needs to be placed in position to complete all the legs.
The traction engine has failed its inspection and to make it safe considerable work needs to be done on the boiler and firebox.
The P3 plant was part of the oil gasification process which was popular in the 1960's when oil was cheap. The Museum has parts of a P3 plant which need reassembling.
