  • It was a beautiful building, but there wasn’t much to do or in the vicinity, except for a couple of hot springs.  more »
  • One of my favourite places of culture/history in the country. The museum is beautiful, whilst the grounds and buildings are gorgeous, holding out for the museum to reopen so i can return.
  • Although museum is not currently ipen, we were still treated to a tour of the area by Ann-Elise Miles. She was amazing. Very informative and was able to show us things we had no idea existed
  • Gorgeous building and grounds. Gift shop in foyer. Rose garden just outside to the north. Kids playground beyond that. Nice grounds for kids to play in..
  • This is one the best free and beautiful place to visit while visiting Rotorua. The whole building is fantastic, the garden around it are one the best. The city spent a lot money and time taking care of it. It’s a great a place for a morning / evening walk when you want to enjoy the quietness and beauty of the city! You could also see the lake view there, just drive a bit more.
  • A must see location for every tourist coming to New Zealand and a lovely place for locals to stop off. Lovely views, lots of parking relaxing environment among beautiful gardens. Very central to the city and shops. One of my main places to visit each time I’m in Rotorua just to relax and enjoy the scenes between things.
