Welcome to the

Methven Heritage Centre

Welcome to Methven, where the mountains meet the plains. The Methven Heritage Centre opened in April 2010 and is a new facility which incorporates conference facilities, a visitor attraction, Methven i-site and the Heritage Cafe.


The Heritage Centre is located in the Mid-Canterbury town of Methven, New Zealand, home of the world renown Mt Hutt Ski Area.


The Centre utilises the original Mt Hutt Memorial Hall facilities, which have been completely refurbished, providing a warm, modern and attractive venue, suitable for all occasions.


The Centre has now opened the New Zealand Alpine & Agriculture Encounter, an experiential visitor attraction using the latest in interactive technology and visual story-telling to take visitors on a journey from the mountains to plains, featuring snowsports, contemporary agriculture, geology and the weather.
