Fascinating look at some of the history behind Lake Taupo. Very informative. Especially loved the special art exhibition with the old time radio transistors made from iconic kiwi items eg pavlova radio (you had to be ttere !)

Parking is free for 150 minutes here. Park here anyway for the shops/restaurants nearby. The museum is small, but there are several exhibits of interest e.g. logging, an old caravan, glassware, the history of the lake formation, a Maori marae etc. Entrance fee only NZD 5 (3 for concessions). Thirty minutes and you´re done!
