International Antarctic Centre, Christchurch Reviews - Write a Review
The center is awesomeness to the max. Staff make what is exceptional into something even better. I have a disability and they looked after me when I needed it. Do everything and you will enjoy every moment you are there. Cafe is great as well!
So impressed. We are traveling through the South Island with our Nissan mini bus and the check engine light came on on Sunday. Monday morning it was off, but we still took it in to make sure. We were in and out in 5 minutes- everything was okay. Super honest and kind. We were so grateful to them. Highly recommend them
Very cool seeing the types of things that happen at Scott Base and research being carried out over there. Good Access including the rides. Full accessible bathrooms.
Pretty chill place if you know what I mean. They have some neat exhibits and the penguin enclosure is amazing. Would've given this place five stars if the entrance price wasn't so high. If you're looking to kill some time you can easily spend 3 hours here!
A lot to take in all at once. Helpful folks though. Don't be afraid to ask questions
