  • Mandatory to visit if you want to understand the Christchurch of today. Great exposition with plenty of witness videos transmitting their impressions of those days to the visitor. Breathtaking videos and pictures.

  • Fantastic exhibit with interactive displays and a short movie. Great for all ages, with a LEGO building station for kids. Pretty heart wrenching stories and photos though. Would recommend as one of the best things to see in town.

  • Well put together. I Felt that the enormity of the destruction would have warranted a larger display. First accounts are quite moving.

  • Nice to place to learn a lot about the earthquake in Christchurch and the restoration of the city. Most interesting was the rescue efforts and aftermath initiatives. There is a lot of information here! Only really disliked the jumping pad where you measure your own "quake" it was a bit disruptive to have some kid jumping and stomping on the pad pretty close to where you are watching the interview movie.

  • I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of content in this centre and it is an excellent introduction to the city and the impact of both recent and historic earthquakes. Worth visiting.
