Kia ora and welcome to Rotorua Museum
Te Whare Taonga o Te Arawa

The earthquake on 14 November 2016 caused significant damage to the central part of the Bath House building in which Rotorua Museum is housed.

The decision was made to close the Museum to the public until at least April 2017, pending further investigation.

Exhibitions, Events and Education programmes scheduled during this time have moved to alternative locations.

Da Vinci Machines and Robots is now at Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre and Rotorua Museum is running free daily tours of Government Gardens – take in the buildings, battles and historic places of these magnificent grounds.
