This is a small museum that gives some interesting background on Taupo and the surrounding region over the years. There is a nice interesting introduction to Maori culture as well as local contemporary crafts. I particularly liked the Ora Garden of Well-being.

This small museum is interesting, well organised and well presented. The award winning garden from the Chelsea flower show is an added highlight, well done to all concerned. It was a real bonus on a foul, rainy, Taupo weekend and worth going to whatever the weather.

We arrived about an hour before closing and helpful staff offered us free entry the next day if we didn't get long enough too look around properly. Nice touch guys.

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.

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.
