The Museum is for free, most of the Museum's are in Christchurch. If you are interested in Modern Art you should have a look, the Museum is only a 5 min walk from the Canterbury Museum. Friendly help from the Museum's Staff.

What a beautiful building the Art Gallery is, and the artworks are gorgeous, modern or traditional there is something here for everyone. Just to marvel at the building itself is worth the journey, and dont miss the sculptures in the surrounding gardens.
