  • There was a lot of cutting edge art in the various galleries on the two floors. I was interested to get to know some of New Zealand's painters from the 1800's and early to mid 1900's. A few galleries ...  more »
  • The back side of this building is not much to write home about, but the front is beautiful - and I'm not usually fussed about modern architecture. There's also some pretty amazing art inside.  more »
  • The museum is an extremely modern piece of architecture. The building itself is part of the experience. The exhibitions were a mixture of traditional and modern. As with all good galleries the spaces ...  more »

  • Great place to visit, with exciting architecture in an ever changing scene. Always something new to look at even if it's the same thing from a new perspective. The Cafe is also great with friendly staff. I still haven't explored the art centre fully but I know I'll be back, the sooner the better.
  • Great visit for young and old. Lovely space and a free day out. I'm local and I still can't believe the gallery is free. It really is excellent value. Something for everyone. Very friendly staff. We had a school trip, and the classroom and program they provided was of excellent quality.
  • Very cool collection of modern and traditional art. Some of it was a bit weird for my tastes but that's the art world I guess. I also enjoyed the smattering of exhibits outside the building as well. The cherry on the top of the whole visit. The only downside was that we didn't have more time to browse the collections here.
  • Nice range of exhibits which refreshes frequently. Has a conveniently built-in underground parking managed by the Christchurch City Council. Sometimes the ground floor is converted into an events venue for the evening. Very classy place for those who love arts.
  • Christchurch Art Gallery is good place to be around. It has a gallery tour guides, who gives you tons of information and knowledge about the things in gallery. It has a refreshment area as well where you can have light refreshments. I think it's good place for each age group of people
