A free museum with lots of information on NZ past with many different exhibitions on a regular basis. Its located next to the Botanical Garden and a great place to learn something about New Zealand.
Great Museum to visit in the historic part of Christchurch City. (Located next to the entrance of the Botanic Gardens)
The Museum was founded early in the establishment of Christchurch, and has diverse collections. It is located next to the Botanic Gardens, and across the road from the Arts Centre, so easy to do all together.
Our treasured museum has had a recent update and is a must see for visitors of all ages! Next door to our Arts Centre.
