The South Canterbury Museum is a great place for kids to explore!

From fossils to fashions, you can see hundreds of fascinating things! Open drawers, do puzzles and lots more.

School holidays are a really good time to visit the Museum, with a range of activities for kids in the galleries. See What's On to find out what current exhibits and programmes are happening or coming up soon.
