“Surprising little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Well worth a visit: for a small provincial museum, much to see. Two exhibitions also while we were there, at no extra cost. On our list as a must-do for future visits to Taupo.

“Great wee museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Kids like coming here. Not that much to see, but they have a holiday programme for the kids. Kia Ora gardens are lovely. Don't expect to have a long stay here, but enough to get a great feel of local history of the area. Always lovely and clean, and great friendly helpful staff.

“Small but quaint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

The Mauri Meeting House (probably wrong term) in the front area was really interesting and I imagine in the summer the grounds are much more impressive. But for $5 not a bad way to spend about an hour.

“Cute wee museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

She's just a little wee museum, but the space is choc full of awesome collections. Especially love the local odds and ends and the caravan display you can climb right into. The staff are friendly, and the building and feature gardens are tidy and beautifully kept. Is also child friendly.

“Small but a gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

Wasn't the biggest museum but had a lot of things to enjoy and learn about. Definitely somewhere to stop in while in Taupo and has a nice garden feature outside to take nice photos.
