Christchurch: Canterbury museum

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Canterbury Museum is not a big place. It's not Te Papa, our national museum in Wellington. It's not small, either. You could easily spend a day and a bit wandering about, inside. For me, it's one of my favourite museums. I love playing tourist and this is definitely one of my must stops for any city tours. 
Museums and galleries always have some special exhibitions going on, and there is currently a new form of Christchurch happening right in the heart of the museum. After the earthquakes a lot of street artists collaborated with the city council to liven up the dead city with colour and creativity.

Works by famous street artists such as Banksy feature here. It all started with a stenciled t-shirt...
Do you also feel sometimes like your head is too full, full of ideas and thoughts and memories? I need to stop a moment and tidy them up, organise them back neatly into the corners of my mind. So my head doesn't burst. I related to this one. 
Less can definitely be more.
