The museum is a great place to start. Afterwards you may want to visit the Buried Village and take a walk in the Whakarewarewa forest. .
Thank you ValGee. You've been SO much help. The trip plan is beginning to come together.
I hope the sun shines for you and you have a great time in Rotorua (and NZ). If you have time, post a review of your experiences. Your 'thank you' is much appreciated. More often than not T/A's have no idea whether their advice has been helpful or ignored.
As a DE myself, I know all too well what you mean.
