  • Rotorua has a number of attractions, the most well-known of which is the Rotorua museum, where you learn about the cultural characteristics of rotorua, the city, there are land, Maori culture and so on. The British-built museum was built in the 19th century and was originally used in bathhouses , and before the people of The Continent believed that the spring had the effect of curing disease , and that illness would come to the spring instead of going to the hospital. There is a large area of grass in front of the museum, and there are roses on the right side, and people who like roses can enjoy it.

  • 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
