Museums & Galleries

With a history of tourism and manaakitanga, Rotorua is great place to discover New Zealand's heritage and traditional Māori culture. The iconic Rotorua Museum, located minutes walk from central Rotorua, is currently offering free daily tours of the beautiful Government Gardens, including the battle history of the area and grounds.

Also in the Government Gardens is The Blue Baths. Originally opened in 1931 and allowing somewhat daring mixed bathing, the former men's changing room now displays historical memorabilia. 

Join a tour at Te Puia and Whakarewarewa Māori Village to discover a guiding legacy that is more than 200 years old. Many of the guides have grown up in the Valley and are direct descendants of guides who hosted international visitors to the Pink and White Terraces, prior to the 1886 Mount Tarawera eruption.

For something a little different discover what life was like in Biblical times at the Bibleworld  Museum and Discovery Centre. See over 70 artefacts from Biblical times and try on a replica Roman helmet!
