Rotorua Museum exhibition

Rotorua Museum exhibition

Two young visitors to the exhibition 'Nga pumanawa o Te Arawa: the beating hearts of Te Arawa', held at the Rotorua Museum: Te Whare Taonga o Te Arawa in 2011, use a touchscreen interactive to explore some of the stories of the region. The exhibition included screens showing videos, graphics and displays of taonga. This range of media was typical of museum displays in the early 2000s.
