Ravenscar House Museum is the stylish new home for Jim and Susan Wakefield's cherished art collection.
The House Museum is a reimagining of the Wakefields' stunning home in the Christchurch coastal suburb of Scarborough, which was damaged beyond repair in the February 2011 earthquake.

SUSAN MARY WAKEFIELD (1942–2022)
We are greatly saddened by the passing of Susan Wakefield. A businesswoman, a scholar and an art-lover, Susan lived an extraordinary life. She and husband Jim, who died in 2020, gifted Ravenscar House Museum to Christchurch and Canterbury as a place where the public can enjoy their cherished art collection in an award-winning contemporary home. We are honoured to care for this part of their legacy.
