The City Exhibition has nothing to do with Christchurch?s history, so it is no museum or anything like that, although the beautiful historic red-brick Queen Anne building would suggest this.

This space, comprising two galleries, is especially designed to provide an area where issues of importance to the city or aspects of local life can be communicated and shared. Community groups and organisations of Christchurch can show their talents, projects and viewpoints to the public.

The building which features sculptures depicting Concord and Industry on the fašade facing Worcester Boulevard, was once erected as the Christchurch City Council?s Municipal Chambers.

The venue is for hire.

Open Mon - Sat 10am ? 4pm

Address: Corner Worcester Boulevard & OxfordTerrace
