Welcome to Lyttelton Museum's website.

Since 1968, Lyttelton Museum has been a home for some of the history of the Lyttelton Harbour area.

We are currently closed because our building was demolished after the Canterbury earthquakes. However, our extensive collection was rescued during a series of daring emergency recovery operations by the Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade and staff from the Air Force Museum of New Zealand (AFMNZ) and our collection is safely stored away.

We are working towards a new museum building for Lyttelton and we want your support and your involvement. See Building News to keep up to date. Alternatively,  like us on Facebook, become a member, and keep an eye out for our pop-up exhibitions around Lyttelton.
