This was a great place to learn all of the local knowledge. LOVED the exhibit and the layout of the place. My daughter didn't want to leave! Very educational and interactive! The guide was PHENOMENAL!... more »
It’s a small showcase of the geography on how volcanoes erupt and happens. Kiddo loves the interActions items provided to explain the science behind the eruption. It’s help us to explain the scenery we saw so far in Roturoa and Taupo. There is also a earthquake simulator of magnitude 6.3 for experience too. Which we let our kiddo to experience it and learn why we need to do drop, cover and hold during earthquake. It’s bad that the Geyser showcase is out of order on the day we visited it. Hopefully it can get back to work soon. The kids will love to see how its being build up.
Informative for bigger children and adults, but not suitable for small children. In addition, something in the old age and sometimes not functional (geyser demo device).
