Science Alive was established in 1991, as a science and technology learning and entertainment centre. In 1993, we completed the purchase of the iconic Railway Station building on Moorhouse Avenue.
On 22 February 2011, following a series of earthquakes, the building was evacuated. After the most damaging earthquake in Christchurch’s history, it was later assessed as uninhabitable. Our office/workshop/Science Shop relocated to Coleridge Street in Sydenham.
Planning is now underway for a new Science Centre in Christchurch Central.
