In 2006 the Rotorua Museum Centennial Trust was established to drive fundraising efforts for the completion of the Bath House building to its original design. See more about the Centennial Project that was completed in 2011 with the opening of the Don Stafford Wing.
With the closure of the Museum in 2006, the Centennial Trust have played a big role in funding and supporting the project and exhibition development for when the Museum reopens.
Our dedicated volunteer guides make Government Gardens visits interesting and entertaining. They provide scheduled daily tours for visitors from all over the world.
Before graduating as guides, Rotorua Museum volunteers complete a free comprehensive training course to ensure they can knowledgeably share the stories of Rotorua, its people and its treasures.
Becoming a volunteer guide gives you a range of Museum benefits:
- Annual volunteer celebration
- Monthly Museum updates
- Free training programme
- Occasional guide outings and get togethers
