Ravenscar House is a house museum donated to Christchurch by Jim and Susan Wakefield to showcase the Ravenscar Trust Collection of decorative art.
‘Our hope is to see Ravenscar House become, like its location, something between a museum and an art gallery, but with its own special atmosphere, and above all, a living place’ – Susan Wakefield.
It is home to artworks by some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most beloved artists. An immersive experience, with every element of the architecture and display very intentionally designed. The building itself is a work of art. An incredible vision and gift to Christchurch. Your visit includes a wonderful digital guide which gives interesting details about everything you see.
