The Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities
Featuring the James Logie Memorial Collection
Come and explore the Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities, where you can see more than two and a half thousand years of human history through the amazing Logie Collection of artefacts from Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Near Eastern cultures. The Logie Collection is one the University of Canterbury's great treasures, and contains some of the finest classical antiquities in New Zealand.
In May 2017, the new Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities will open on Level 1 of the Chemistry Building at 3 Hereford Street, in the historic Christchurch Arts Centre.
OPENING EXHIBITION AT THE TEECE MUSEUM
The gods and heroes of the Greeks and Romans were powerful, yet they were also complex. The inaugural exhibition at the Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities celebrates the stories of their adventures, disputes, conflicts and love interests. A richly illustrated catalogue has been produced to accompany the exhibition, published by Canterbury University Press.
When: 20 May – 29 October 2017, open to the public Wednesdays through to Sundays, 11am-3pm
