Museum Rotorua

Not the museum trip you may expect.  The Museum building is a tribute unto itself in many ways and well worth while having a look through.  It is worth choosing a fine day to be able to take advantage of the viewing platforms on top of the building.

From its heyday as an experimental spa treatments centre, the museum was saved from dilapidation when it became an underground venue for gigs in the 60’s.  There are a range of installations to experience, and a movie theatre that gives a very modern re-enactment of the history of the Rotorua region – with no less a person that Temuera Morrison (Shortland Street, Once Were Warriors & Star Wars) guiding you through.

Also well worth a mention is the Arts gallery, it has a range of interesting contemporary and more classics art forms.  There are guides available for each of the sections of the museum and you have the option of absorbing it all in your own way, or gaining the additional value of local knowledge by taking a guided tour.
