the flowers around the museum are so beautiful the place so wonderful
Canterbury museum has a bit of everything on display, history, culture and arts & crafts.
Canterbury Museum is arguably the most famous museum in Christchurch. The institution celebrates the cultural heritage of New Zealand by telling the history of the Maori through precious artifacts and stories. The museum also has an Antarctica exhibit that carries visitors through New Zealand’s age of exploration. The museums often have special displays, hands-on activities for kids, and interactive exhibits.
Have been there some many time, good for kids.
An interesting and free museum to explore and learn about natural and human history. Take your time and peruse each exhibition or pick and choose the ones that interest you the most. Some of the most interesting during my visit include the Antarctica exhibition and learning about the Canterbury region.
Beautiful old worlde museum...lovely cafe also
Not a bad little museum. There's a dinosaur skeleton and a vehicle from Antarctica, which are the things I remember most from my visit.
