Canterbury Museum, Christchurch Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great place! The kids love it here! Wish it would as bigger or had more exhibits. The discover area is great. $2 entry per kid but if you get the family card you can get in as many times as you like for a year!

  • Went into the museum after a trip around the botanical gardens. Great little museum where you can learn loads about the local culture and history. There is also a really good section on Antarctica too. Highly recommended.

  • Brought my three year old here and we had a ball. Lots to see and do. Well worth a visit with the Botanical Gardens next door.

  • One of the greatest attractions in Christchurch, allow at least 2 to 3 hours to enjoy all the exhibitions. It entertains all age groups. Great location, admission is free but donation is recommended. If you are new in Christchurch I must suggest to visit.

  • Great place to drop by and visit. Lots of interesting things are displayed here so you can learn about history and nature. We loved every single second we spend here. Will visit again we had a blast!
