A great museum with lots of diverse exhibits. Staff very helpful. Particularly enjoyed National Geographic photo exhibition. Fantastic collection of meaningful photos taken by acknowledged photographers on world events much more as well in other parts of the museum to interest all.
This is a really nice looking building, and very well located, being in the CBD near the gardens and tram. The discovery room is an excellent experience for small children, and we often come here on a rainy day. The cafe is really nice, with a great view.
This is a very interesting museum just by Hagley Park. Great place to visit and learn about the history of New Zealand. Entry is free! I loved exhibits, such as the heritage streets of Christchurch in the early settlement days and the costumes of authority. I thoroughly enjoyed the documentary film on Fred and Myrtle Flutey's Paua Shell House in Bluff. I spent the entire day here! Highly recommended!
Love this place! The heritage street with all of the olden day costumes is a real treat, plus the interactive discovery centre is heaps of fun. The temporary exhibitions like dinosaurs and Egyptian mummies are awesome too - heaps for the entire family to enjoy.
Free to visit ( but donations help them run the museum) . Always lots to see and quite often have fun kid displays on over the school holidays. Very informative if you want to read everything . The Antarctic display is one of our fav parts- with some interactive stuff to do. Nice cafe on upper floor - with views over fountain/ trees outside. Accessible for all as they have lifts or stairs you can use.
