Lyttelton museum has received a very high amount of grant from the lottery environment. This amount was received in lieu of scanning, thousands of historic images relating to Lyttelton Harbour Whakaraupo area and community.

The Museum’s collection has been in storage with them since the 2010/11 earthquake. During the earthquake, the entire collection was rescued from Gladstone Quay. Meanwhile, the museum is dedicatedly working on a range of pop-up exhibitions and projects to bring the community in innovative ways.

Vice President Kerry McCarthy said, “We are absolutely delighted that we will be able to scan and preserve our wonderful collection of historic images. Not only will this protect our fragile originals but also we will be able to make pictures available in our online collection, so they can be accessed easily by anyone.

She also stressed on the online comment feature saying that they are very excited how the people are going to react to it and what are the comments they are going to receive.
