Rotorua Museum’s historic Bath House is inching closer to its $15 million make-over.
DPA Architects have been tapped to carry out design work for the restoration, which was made necessary by the Kaikoura earthquakes in 2016. Rotorua Lakes Council’s Arts and Culture manager Stewart Brown says local firm Carling Architects will also be involved.
Precious artifacts have been moved into storage with iwi, Te Papa and Auckland Museum for safe keeping. Work will begin next July. The museum plans to reopen in 2021.
