Anyway, a quick lunch and I was off to Rotorua Museum. There is an interesting history of the building, it was used to be a bath house to treat wounded soldiers from the war. And some of the bath rooms were shown in this building. The location of Rotorua caldera with a lot of thermal activities made it a perfect location for a bathhouse. There were many different kind of baths to take, from sulfur bath to mud bath (For tourists who want to experience sulfur bath, they can go to Polynesian Spa located near museum).

From Government garden, there's a path leading to lake Rotorua. Luckily by this time, my nose got used to the sulfur smell and I can thoroughly enjoy the beauty of my surroundings!
