  • It was a beautiful building, but there wasn’t much to do or in the vicinity, except for a couple of hot springs.

  • I used to have great memory inside way before google starts doing reviews. The interior was marvellous. However can’t go in at the moment and repair works will take forever! 9 years in the plan and I think it will likely to reopen sometime in 2030…… a whole generation is gone
  • Great place for a morning and evening walk! 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.
  • 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
  • Magnificent building structure surrounded by tulips and assorted flowers via government gardens. Best time to visit is late afternoon or early in the morning to avoid the other people crowding the place.. September to october visit was awesome to witness the tulip bloom in the gardens..
  • 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..
