Ravenscar House

Canterbury Museum and the Ravenscar Trust are currently developing plans for New Zealand’s first contemporary house museum to display the Trust’s collections of New Zealand arts, sculpture, designer furniture and classical antiquities.

Canterbury Museum will own the house museum and operate it jointly with the Trust. Ravenscar House will be built on a site at 52 Rolleston Avenue which has been gifted to the Museum by the Christchurch City Council following public consultation in late 2015.
