Canterbury Museum will partially reopen tomorrow after being closed since April while it assessed engineering reports in the wake of ongoing quakes.

Up to 600 visitors have still turned up each week wanting to get in.

"With so many of our Christchurch attractions and historic buildings closed or demolished, and although it was the right thing to do, the temporary closure of the museum was a significant blow for our community and for staff," said director Anthony Wright.

Yes, they are NZ's best example of high Victorian gothic revival architecture.

Only if the cost can be brought down.

No, $70 million could be used for more important things.
