The Canterbury Museum, which has been off limits to the public since February's earthquake, is to re-open tomorrow.

It was originally set to open at the start of July, but June's serious aftershocks pushed the date back. 

Due to earthquake-strengthening carried out in the 1980s, the building has come through the three major quakes well. 

Only 188 of the 12,000 display items were damaged or broken.
