Quake City, Christchurch Reviews
Such a moving experience. It showcased the resilience, the humour intermingled with the heartbreak, and the strong sense of community of the Canterbury people. I was especially impressed with the technology and innovations being born out of the disaster. It also highlighted for me the power and importance of story-telling.
Really interesting and moving rendition covering the recent (2010/11) Canterbury quakes. The video interviews (12 over ~1hr) with some of those caught up in it are particularly moving. Would recommend planning to be there much longer than you'd normally expect for a museum or exhibit of it's size.
I came away from here with up most respect for the people of Christchurch and an understanding of what happened with the earthquakes. The staff are nice. U can leave your coat at the front desk. Totally worth the 20 fee to enter. Reflect when you are there.
Very interesting. Some pretty cool displays as well. A little steep entrance fee (20$) but a good experience if you have the time.
Well worth a visit. It still amazes me how may buildings had to come down as a result of the quakes. Christchurch is just so different now to what it was when l grew up there. The empty spaces in both the city and suburbs where homes and business used to be to someone like me who remembers what used to be there fill me with sadness.
