Quake City tells stories of heroism, hope and loss from the Canterbury earthquakes.

Quake City is a special exhibition from Canterbury Museum where you can learn about the Canterbury earthquakes.

On 4 September 2010 and 22 February 2011, Canterbury was rocked by devastating seismic events. The region is still recovering.

Quake City explains the science of what causes earthquakes, along with the phenomenon of liquefaction – when the ground bubbled up burying streets and sinking buildings.

Hear first-hand accounts of earthquake survivors and see the extraordinary responses emergency services, international rescue teams and thousands of volunteers.

Kids can play with a hands-on exhibit that simulates liquefaction by pumping air through a bed of sand or design new buildings for Christchurch out of Lego.


Price: Adults $20, Children $8, Concession $16. Children under 15 free with an adult.

Opening hours: Daily except Christmas Day. 10am to 5pm.
