Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities

Christchurch, Online
Wed to Sun 11am–3pm

Whether you are a student of Classics, have an interest in ancient cultures, or are just looking fun family-friendly activities in Christchurch, there is something here for everyone in this very small (one room) but interesting and very carefully curated museum.

There is lots to see at the Arts Centre and it’s close to the Botanic Gardens, Art Gallery and Christchurch Museum so this is a lovely free extra. The UC Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities is home to the amazing James Logie Memorial Collection of artefacts from Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Near Eastern cultures. The Logie Collection is one of the University of Canterbury’s great treasures, and contains some of the finest classical antiquities in New Zealand. The Teece is family friendly, with activities for all ages to enjoy. Entry is free, donations welcomed.
