  • Must do in Christchurch. The classics to modern art with special exhibitions. Great talks and community events. Architecture stunning. Also great to take photos outside with clouds and sunsets.
  • I am not a gallery person, but I enjoyed the visit very much. An eclectic mix of everything, bright and cozy building, with all the facilities you need. The staff are friendly as well. A great rainy day activity. And it’s FREE!
  • Beautiful building! Beautifully displayed, interesting, inspiring. A must see in ChCh!
  • Great place to visit if your in Christchurch. Free to enter and very friendly staff. Art work that makes you appreciate NZ artist talent in addition to creativity. In addition car parking is reasonable priced!
  • Nice place. Don't know if it's brand new construction or not. Good piece of architecture anyway.

Where to stay in Christchurch

Offering an extensive range of hotels, hostels, motels with kitchens, and campsites, Christchurch makes a great place to set up camp as you explore the city and beyond. The greatest diversity of accommodations clusters in the city center next to North and South Hagley parks. You'll find apartments, boutique and luxury hotels, and backpacker hostels in the central district and towards the coast, while cheaper places to stay--such as motels, RV parks, and economy hotels--dot the outskirts and the area surrounding the airport.
