Glentunnel Museum, Canterbury, New Zealand

Glentunnel Museum contains an extensive collection of items recording the history of the area which has seen much rural industrialism, particularly the pottery and brickworks.

The museum has an extensive library and history of local service men who fought in WW1 and WW2, as well as the local school which was set up in 1879.

The building in which the museum is housed was originally the Odd Fellows Hall. Built in 1908, it served as a Lodge Hall until 1968. In 1970 it was leased by the Selwyn District Council who purchased the building in 1985.
