1/09/2022: Our Education Team will continue to offer lessons in Term 3. In Term 4, we’ll only be able to accept own-time bookings. We might have to change or cancel bookings and some galleries might not be accessible for your visit. We will provide an update on our teaching programme for next year as soon as we confirm lessons and venues. See our service changes page for updates.
Canterbury Museum holds 2.3 million items that cover Antarctic expeditions, Canterbury settlement, ethnology and natural history collections, including geological and zoological specimens.
Access to this rich and vast collection, together with access to curatorial knowledge make Canterbury Museum a valuable and inspiring resource for students.
Our curators have a wide range of expertise across a large array of disciplines such as vertebrate and invertebrate zoology, botany, Canterbury History (both Māori and European), ethnology, archaeology, design, textiles, and Antarctic History.
