“My kids went on a 'treasure hunt'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

Only $5 admission per adult. Give children a clipboard with pictures of items they need to find around the museum. A good sample/range of artefacts and interactive things to do. Kids had an area where they could do puzzles and craft. Very helpful staff. Would have loved a cafe. Would have been nice to have a hot chocolate at the end of our visit before leaving into the crisp Taupo air.

Perfect size for a town its size, a great look at the history of the area from commerce to culture. Well laid out and very clean and uncluttered

“educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

I visited the museum about two years ago as i had time to kill and i found the history of Taupo very interesting, also the information about earthquakes, volcanos, etc. I was in the museum much longer than i thought i would be.

“Small but very informative.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Worth an hour or so to get the history of Taupo and how it has developed in a short period of time. For the garden lovers they have re-created a Chelsea gold medal winning small garden.
