    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!

    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.

The greatest diversity of accommodations clusters in the city center next to North and South Hagley parks.
