Julius von Haast

Canterbury Museum director and founder Julius von Haast stands among moa skeletons in 1867. Haast had led excavations of a large number of moa bones in North Canterbury, and these formed the basis of the museum collection when it opened in 1870. Museums became important research institutions and repositories of scientific knowledge.
