"Share Taupo's story with the world" is the motto of the museum here. The museum includes documentaries reflecting the history of Taupo, Maori artworks, the trout farming industry, and boats used in Taupo. For children, there are also various interactions and activities. The two art galleries will change exhibitions from time to time, displaying and selling contemporary New Zealand paintings, sculptures, photography and other works. Adults are $5, kids are free, and not many tourists come.
This is a very small museum. Student tickets cost 3 yuan. There are only four exhibition areas and there are not many exhibits, but they are all distinctive. African artworks are impressive. In addition, Lake Gallery is not bad, narrating the history of Lake Taupo development and deep forest reclamation.
Taupoko is the largest lake in the North Island and the entire New Zealand, and it is also a historical area for the Maori people.
The Lake Taupo Museum is located on the shore of Lake Taupo in the North Island of New Zealand, next to i-SITE. It is a small museum. There are no special displays in the museum, mainly about the history of the lake and related works of art. Unless there is extra time to pass, there is no need to enter.
This is okay, so so. I think the best museum I have been to in New Zealand is the TE PAPA Museum in Wellington. You can stay in it all day without getting bored!
I really feel that it is very ordinary. If you have a lot of time, you can come and see it just to live in the small town for a while, or you don't need to waste time.
