Rotorua Museum Reviews
박물관은 공사중이라 안으로 들어가는건 막혀있었습니다. 박물관내부뿐만 아니라 그에 연계된 카페와 기념품가게도 닫았더군요. 여행책자에서 보시는것처럼 빨간 건물이 예쁘긴한데요. 딱 그 까지입니다. 사진하나 찍으면 더이상할건 없어요. 앞에 잔디공원은 동네어르신들의 게이트볼장으로 사용중입니다. more »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
