Canterbury Museum

Interesting
The Canterbury Museum, a stone's throw from the Botanic Gardens, looks like a large cabinet of curiosities. Colonial and pre-Colonial past, moa skeletons (a legendary bird, now extinct), decorative arts, exploration of the Antarctic (for which Christchurch is the logistical base), and a children's section.
