The Canterbury Museum is the go-to place for anybody who wants to experience the cultural, human and natural history of New Zealand. It is a striking Gothic Revival that opened in 1870 as a single-storeyed building. It now stands as a beautiful foundation after the various additions made to its architecture over the years. With its 2.3 million more artefacts, the museum offers not only historically fascinating exhibits but also multiple galleries, each with a unique timeline, place, and history to show.
The popular tourist attraction is not only known for the variety of exhibitions it has to offer but also for the activities and tours specially designed to cater to children. Hence, the venue is perfect for a family to visit as people of all ages will enjoy the museum and be entertained through the different activities.
The museum is located right in the central city of Christchurch, within its Cultural Precinct, which is also home to nearby attractions like the Christchurch Art Gallery, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens and the Arts Centre of Christchurch. It lies on Rolleston Avenue, towards the east end of Hagley Park and can be reached by public and private transportation or by foot.
