    Why don’t they go the whole way and leave out the minor part of the name, “Otago Settlers Museum”? It’s plainly signalled in their logo and overall attitude that this is a relic of the boring old days, hardly appropriate for the New Superduper Culturally Revisionist edifice.

    The general consensus today is it looks cheaply done (no one is assuming it was done cheaply). A couple of people have questioned why Otago Settlers Museum has been diminished so viciously. I wonder why it is red. Even newbie designers know that prominent red can inflame and divert. What many can probably agree on is the cost of this foolish exercise. Likely tens of thousands for the project management and development costs. And hundreds of thousands for the rebranding.

    But hey what’s a little more added to the public tab?

    I love this site, it always makes me feel so much better seeing how septic, negative and ignorant you all are. Keep up the good work, its very entertaining.

    • T.Ruth if you want to be led unsuspectingly by the nose by our less than ‘honest and forthcoming’ council that is your affair. Why visit if you’re a ‘positivist’ in a different way to the assertive posters here. I’m waiting to see who laughs last. And that’s not to say anything will change in October, because of the sheep problem. It might take longer. Going forward…..

    T.Ruth? I wonder if he/she is a descendent of Babe Ruth the ‘Sultan of
    Swat’ ?

We have had some great successes and I intend to build on those with the team here at the Museum and Garden.”
