Canterbury Museum

Housed in an exquisite historic building in Christchurch's Cultural Precinct, are outstanding Maori exhibits, a Victorian Christchurch Street and stories of adventure and daring from Antarctica's heroic era.

There is fun for children in Discovery, the Museum's natural history centre, and interactive exploration in Living Canterbury, an exhibition that surveys elements of Canterbury's living landscape.

A frequently changing exhibition programme complements the Museum's permanent galleries. Take time to browse the gift shop or relax in the Museum Cafe overlooking the beautiful Christchurch Botanic Gardens.
