The Arts Centre’s buildings are the largest collection of Category 1 Historic Places listed by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga. Its 22 Gothic revival spaces, dating back to 1877, were extensively damaged by the 2010-11 Canterbury earthquakes. An 11 year project to restore them is close to completion.
Rauora/Revival tells the story of The Arts Centre’s restoration. Hear from the people involved; see, touch and feel the materials and tools they used; and learn about the future of the revived Arts Centre.
The Revival exhibition is free to the public, and open daily between 9am-5pm. Donations are greatly appreciated.
Group tours are available on request. Please contact visitor services if you wish to arrange a tour on 03 366 0989 or email.
