Canterbury Museum special exhibition Quake City will waive its usual entry fee for visitors on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 August.

The exhibition is designed to take visitors through the events of the Canterbury earthquakes, from the first shake on 4 September 2010, through the destruction and rescue efforts of 22 February 2011 and the cleanup and rebuild over subsequent years.

Quake City exhibits some of the defining objects of the Canterbury earthquakes, including top of the spire of ChristChurch Cathedral, as well as items like road cones, water containers and portaloos that were part of many Cantabrians’ lives post-earthquake.

Visitors can harness pedal power to watch a short film on Gap Filler’s cycle-powered cinema, or design new buildings for Christchurch using Lego bricks. There are also scientific explanations for what caused the quakes and why the February seismic event, in particular, was so destructive.
