Quake City

Our special exhibition telling stories from the Canterbury earthquakes will be temporarily closed from 26 June to late August 2017 while we relocate to the corner of Armagh Street and Durham Street. Check here for updates on our reopening.


What impact does an extreme natural event have on our environment and how did the people of Christchurch respond?

Students will be taken on a guided tour of Quake City where they will have the opportunity to discuss the processes that occurred during the Canterbury earthquakes, including the impact on our city and the social and technological responses.

Through exploration and discussion, students will understand the impact that this event has had on Canterbury and discover what the future might look like.
