This was on my list of must do's in Rotorua. I was very disappointed to find that this building is "temporarily" closed, money needs to be raised by the council, to bring this building up to earthquake standards. I hope that the money can be raised, so this great building will open again. The grounds are beautiful, its definitely worth having a look around the outside of the building.

I visited the museum as part of my trip to Rotorua, the museum is currently closed to the public but you can come here for a picture with this pretty building.

The grounds are lovely and the building makes a nice backdrop for photos (less the fencing around the structure). Still under consideration as to the costs of bringing the beautiful building up to code ....the red terra cotta roof is too heavy to meet earthquake resistance standards.

Unfortunately the building doesn’t conform to earthquake regulations so it is closed for repairs. It is a beautiful old building, well worth a look from the outside.

The museum is closed while the city determines how to reinforce the building to make it earthquake resistant. We were told it would probably not reopen until 2020 or later.
