Canterbury Museum


The interesting and innovative exhibitions and public programmes on offer at Canterbury Museum provide local, national and international visitors with a variety of experiences and learning opportunities

Developing these exhibitions and programmes, maintaining the heritage buildings the Museum is housed in, and undertaking the development and preservation of the fantastic collections held in trust for the people of Canterbury is a costly exercise.

We gratefully acknowledge the significant ongoing financial support from the Christchurch City Council, and the Waimakariri, Hurunui and Selwyn District Councils for our operational budgets, but in order to undertake anything "out of the ordinary" we rely on the generosity of benefactors and donors.
