What a transformation

Rutherford’s Den has undergone a massive transformation as illustrated by the before and after photos in the gallery below, along with the 30 second timelapse.

Now a multi-media experience like no other in Christchurch, Rutherford’s Den features a unique blend of old and new. The historic building’s beautiful features are untouched, while the modern displays have been carefully placed within the stunning heritage environment.

Watch the 30 second timelapse.
