A touring show at the Otago Museum, which conjures up the
heartbreak and hopes arising from the Canterbury earthquakes,
has attracted more than 25,000 visitors, many finding it a
highly emotional experience.
Anxieties are growing at the Otago Museum Trust Board about
financial pressures which could result in the museum drawing
down substantial amounts of its funding reserves to maintain
services in coming years.
A major touring show focusing on the February 2011
Christchurch earthquake will help convey the impact and the
science behind one of New Zealand's biggest natural
disasters, Otago Museum officials say.
