Discover the power of storytelling at Christchurch Mansion. This new exhibition includes Oscar-winning film costumes, comics, museum objects and local stories.


From folklore to fake news, people have told stories for thousands of years.

Three iconic costumes from Marvel Studios’ Black Panther are woven into a patchwork of storytelling traditions from across time and place. The outfits of T’Challa, Shuri and Okoye featured in the ground-breaking film sit alongside Marvel comics, historic museum objects and local stories.

From music to movies, carvings to cartoons, this exhibition asks how the stories we know shape the way we see the world.
