Event Details

MOTAT is closed on Mondays during Alert Level 2.

Delve into the lives of the 1,000 most studied people in the world at this exhibition at MOTAT. The Dunedin Study (officially called The Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study) has seen 1,037 Kiwis born in Dunedin between 1972 and 1973 become some of the most studied people in the world.

Initially conceived as an investigation into child health and development, since its inception the study has monitored, recorded and researched numerous aspects of the participants lives. The findings have appeared in more than 1,200 academic publications and influenced the lives of many others through public policy throughout the world.

This exhibition parallels the participants lives through the decades, from their childhood in the 1970s, through to adulthood in the 2000s, telling the story of the study, its research methods and its findings.
