South Canterbury Museum
The South Canterbury Museum has a focus on the natural heritage and history of the South Canterbury region of New Zealand – land, life and people.
They collect specimens, artifacts, images, documents and information that can be used to explore the region’s heritage.
Extensive collections are housed in a purpose-built wing where they are catalogued and stored. These collections provide the raw materials for our exhibitions, education programmes, research and other activities.
Work is carried out by a dedicated team of people including fulltime and part-time staff, volunteers and interns
