Immerse Yourself in Art and Culture

The Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu is home to one New Zealand's most important public art collections. The gallery houses a collection from classics to modern art, and regularly showcases works from New Zealand and internationally based artists. 

The building is a piece of art in itself, with the glass facade resembling the flow of the Avon river/Ōtākaro. 

The gallery space is light and airy, located on two floors. On the ground floor, you'll find Universo Brasserie & Bar with a delicious menu and the Gallery Shop - perfect to buy a gift to take home. 

The gallery runs regular tours and events, with favourites including - "Introduction to the Gallery Tour" or "Oh Baby, it's Art!".
