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.
The Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities is open on Level 1 of the UC Arts City Location (the old Chemistry Building) at 3 Hereford Street, in the historic Christchurch Arts Centre.

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
