Historic New Zealand/other places

Hey, so I go on family trips every year and we're planning next year's trip. I've always wanted to go to New Zealand, but I need to convince my mom it's a good destination. She's the kind of person that likes to go to old castles, on historic tours, famous art galleries, cathedrals, palaces, etc. She doesn't like things like hiking, cruises, scenic drives, etc. Any things in New Zealand that my mom would enjoy? When I research places like Auckland, I don't see a lot of things that seem appealing. Is Christchurch still a wreck or is it back to normal? If not, are there any places OUTSIDE of Europe, Japan, US, Australia, and Canada like that?

Visiting Europe this winter (Dec 16-Jan 16) with a friend. This is a superset of places we want to visit, minus small trips to neighboring towns/cities. Any suggestions to add/remove?
-art (Siena, Florence, Vatican, also some architecture -- German cathedrals, Mantua, Pienza, etc),
-philosophy/logic (Vienna, Gottingen, Ljubljana (ayyy zizek), Athens/Delphi/etc)
-literature (not sure about this one)
-computer science/math (maybe visit some universities in Athens?)
