Time Detectives: Ōtautahi Spring Holiday Trail

Travel back in time and solve puzzles at five of the city's favourite places!

Dinosaurs, tuatara, ancient Greek heroes and Egyptian hieroglyphics are just some of the amazing things you'll discover as you journey through time to discover the past.

The trail takes place at five locations – Tūranga, the Botanic Gardens, Art Gallery, Canterbury Museum (currently located in the CoCA Gallery on Gloucester Street), and the Teece Museum. You can do all five in one day or spread the fun over the whole holidays.

Collect a free trail booklet from any of the five locations and make sure to get a stamp from each venue when you've finished the activities.

Ki te hoe! Let's get going!
