An excellent all weather attraction! Although the museum is oh SO child friendly it is quiet and peaceful for adult visitors without children too. We spent half a day there with two children aged 3 and 5.

Thanks for your review. So pleased that your whole family were able to enjoy Bibleworld. Do bring the kids back, as they will likely take in and enjoy different things as they grow. More

The creators of this museum have done a great job in creating and presenting detailed 3D models of the life and times of biblical characters starting from Abraham and working through to life size characters from New Testament times. The museum includes large 3D maps, which I found really helpful, timelines, various real historical artefacts as well as replicas of... More

So much hard work gone into this place. I almost missed the entrance, you have to watch for the sign and its upstairs, but what an enchanting, quaint museum. The kids loved the dressup area and the hands on room. The displays are really quite amazing.

We were looking for this place, having seen the advert in the visitor guide, but managed to walk straight past the doorway. Fortunately we realised almost immediately, and climbed the stairs to the upper floor, where we found the lovely Sarah who directed us to the very informative displays, models, artefacts, and explanations of the bible. This activity is suitable... More

We were warmly greeted at the door and suggestions made as to which exhibitions to view in order - the model making in this museum is beyond excellent. Some life size models as well as genuine artifacts Well worth a visit -or two!

Took the kids to Bibleworld and the whole family enjoyed it. Interesting artefacts and there are beautiful, detailed models spanning the old and New Testament. There is an interactive hands on area which we all enjoyed and we were impressed that many of the exhibits had little activity cards next to them so that kids could appreciate them too.

I arrived in Rotorua late in the afternoon, and having made a quick check on Trip Advisor, saw this museum listed just round the corner from my hostel. It was raining hard so ideal place to visit. The attraction itself is on the first floor of a shopping street, and so you need to look carefully for the entrance. When... More
