May 2010

Canterbury Museum is a short walk from the centre of Christchurch & right next to the Botanical Gardens.

There are a series of different displays covering the history of New Zealand & the Canterbury area. One of the best is the recreation of an early Christchurch street along with pictures & items from the early history of Canterbury.

Other displays include a Chinese history section & an interactive area for kids to play along with stories about famous locals.

Upstairs there is a series of displays on the history exploration of the South Pole & the Ice.

A new display I had not seen before was the famous Paua Shell house recreation. There is a short movie to explain the amazing story behind it.

As always there is a short term exhibition in the main hall, when I visited it was centred around the 125 anniversary of the St John Ambulance service.

Be sure to have a play on all the cool toys & get your photo taken with them.
