WHAT IS STEAMPUNK?
The Steampunk future is driven by the unusual...
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 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 television shows such as Dr. Who.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
We are an interactive museum, which allows for exploration and discovery.
It features an interesting collection of retro-futuristic sci-fi art, movies, sculpture and sound.
The average visit time is 45-60 minutes.
We encourage photography.
Please be advised during the winter warm clothing is recommended.
ORIGIN OF STEAMPUNK HQ
Steampunk HQ has infiltrated the "Grain Elevator". An 1883 Oamaru stone building, located at the entrance of Oamaru's Victorian Precinct.
Steampunk HQ was founded in 2011 by a group of creative minds (Don Patterson, Jac Grenfell and Brian de Geest), who were passionate about Steampunk, and showcasing it to the public. We are constantly working with talented individuals to collaborate on projects and expand our collection.
Steampunk HQ promotes sustainability and recycling; it features an interesting collection of retro-futuristic sci-fi art, movies, sculpture and sound.
Oamaru's Victorian precinct is the perfect setting for steampunk, as the architecture is a great backdrop for this alternative version of 19th century England.
