What a little treasure this small museum is. It contains lots of local historical items and the little garden to the rear is lovely to stroll through. Friendly informative staff and well worth a visit. Highly recommended
I like museums and I particularly enjoy them when surrounded by lovely gardens. If I won the lottery, this is the kind of place I would like to buy. Of course it would need an army of staff to keep it running, but then - as a lottery winner, that would be no problem!
A gem of a museum with lovely gardens. Very informative without being too in depth and boring. Very friendly and helpful staff. Don't miss it if you're in Christchurch.
