Quake City

Quake City is a multi-media attraction that tells the stories of the Canterbury earthquakes and the extraordinary response of the emergency services, international rescue teams, the thousands of volunteers who pitched in to help – construction workers, the Student Volunteer Army, the Farmy Army – and the incredible resilience of Canterbury’s communities. The exhibition includes some of the objects which have defined the Canterbury earthquakes including the spire of ChristChurch Cathedral and the railway station clocks which stopped at 12.51 pm on 22 February 2011.

The rebuild section brings the visitor up to date with progress in regenerating the city and the recovery projects underway.
