South Canterbury Museum, Timaru

(5/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
A regional museum of nature, history and culture. A small team of staff, volunteers and collaborators work hard to care for extensive collections, produce great exhibitions, run dynamic education programmes for schools both at the Museum and around the region, and generally promote local heritage. We're into publishing books, providing research access, and generally getting people engaged with the wonderful natural and cultural heritage of South Canterbury.
