Rotorua Museum Reviews
Le musée est actuellement fermé pour travaux . Les accès se font uniquement à l’extérieur du bâtiment . more »The museum is currently closed for work. Access is only outside the building.
It was a beautiful building, but there wasn’t much to do or in the vicinity, except for a couple of hot springs. more »
I have only given the Rotorua Museum 4 stars simply because it is currently under going refurbishment and is therefore closed until it is completed. The museum used to be the residence of the British Governor but that is no longer the case. The museum is situated in the Governor Garden Park which are beautifully landscaped with lots of different flower beds.
The most brilliant place in Rotorua. Loved exploring the history and looking at the features of this unique colonial era building. Enjoyed the interactive tour. Best place to hang here in winter
