The Lyceum, Dunedin

The Lyceum was a public hall built by the Freethought Association in Dunedin. It was opened on 1 May 1882 by freethinker Robert Stout (premier from 1884 to 1887), who gave a lecture entitled 'What is free-thought?' to an audience of 750 people. Freethinkers based their opinions on science, logic and reason rather than on religious belief. The building no longer stands.
