Rotorua Museum cares for a wide range of objects, taonga (treasures), images and artworks relating to the Rotorua region. Most of these precious items are stored and cared for in our offsite storage facility away from the main museum building.
Join us for a very rare and special opportunity to see the museum collection and meet the staff who look after it.
Inquiry based, students will become ‘collection staff’ during the visit, carefully handling, discussing and selecting items for consideration for the collection.
Please note: Unfortunately the Museum bus cannot be used for this session. Maximum one class per visit only.
