Follow in the footsteps of one of New Zealand’s greatest scientists and hold your next event in a Victorian lecture theatre. The Rutherford’s Den Lecture Theatre in the Clock Tower (1877) was one of the actual classrooms Ernest, Lord Rutherford, the father of nuclear physics, and his peers studied in. Built in the 1870s, the lecture theatre has been extensively strengthened and restored post-earthquake and enhanced with modern heating, lighting, audio-visual and sound equipment.
