  • The museum was under construction and was blocked from entering. In addition to the museum's interior, the café and souvenir shop were also closed. As you can see from the travel booklet, the red Building is pretty. Just that. I don't have a single photo. The grass park in front is being used as a gate ball of the neighborhood of the gods.

  • The Museum is closed because the building is being retrofitted for earthquake protection. They do not give any indication when it will re-open.  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
