  • 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
