“thought provoking”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

An experience that is very emotional but in an uplifting way. Explains how earthquakes occur & the damage of recent quakes but also shows the positive efforts of volunteers in the aftermath & resilience of residents to move forward. Many lighthearted moments. A variety of activities for all ages. Be prepared for the emotion but don't avoid the experience.

“Interesting”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

This city is amazing I have been prior to the earthquake. They should be proud of how they are making a comeback and a positive outlook on all that is happening. Quake city tells the story in a interesting and respectful way. Worth a visit.

“Inspiring”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Don't miss this exhibition to understand more about the devastating earthquakes. Very tastefully done, very informative, give yourself a couple of hours. Don't miss the documentary film. You will feel heartbroken, angry, hopeful and joyful.

“Definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Very interesting museum located in the Re:start shopping area and is well worth a visit whilst in Christchurch. It provides a very clear explanation to the devastating earthquakes as well as showing pictures, videos and some artifacts from the destruction. It tells a little bit about what they are planning now, however it is still a work in progress! Provides a great understanding and definitely worth the $10 entry fee when you are next in Christchurch.
