Located in the central city next to the Botanic Gardens, Canterbury Museum is one of
Christchurch’s most popular attractions. Entry is free and donations are appreciated.
The Māori galleries display tools and artworks made by our region’s first people. The Christchurch Street and Victorian Museum recreate the nineteenth-century city.
See historic decorative objects with local significance in the Mountfort Gallery, and head upstairs to explore New Zealand’s largest collection of Chinese art and antiquities in the Asian Arts gallery.
Regular special New Zealand and international exhibitions are also on display.
