Keen to spend some quality time with Mum and explore a beautiful historic home? Welcome to Olveston!

Olveston is an authentic and original historic home depicting the life of a wealthy merchant family in the early part of the twentieth century. Opened as a historic house museum in 1967, Olveston is a time capsule as little has changed inside the house since it was occupied as a family home between 1906 to 1966.

Built for Dunedin businessman, collector and philanthropist David Theomin, his wife Marie and their two children Edward and Dorothy and designed by acclaimed English architect Sir Ernest George, Olveston was a family home furnished with fine art, furniture and artefacts purchased from all around the world. It was intended for future generations but was gifted to the City of Dunedin when the last surviving member of the family, Miss Dorothy Theomin, died in 1966. 

Olveston is open 364 days a year and offers six 1-hour tours daily. It also offers a programme of other tours and events throughout the year. 

Take a trip back in time and enjoy the beauty of Olveston Historic Home.
