We visited bible world and were amazed at just how interactive it was, great displays depicting the time in display. Very knowledgable owners, great for kids and Christian families to share a special moment, learn and have fun

Free to visit. My 9-year old looked at all the exhibits, and then there is a hands-on section for kids. Good rainy day activity. Will take less than an hour.

We were struggling to find a good place for the kids on a raining day in Rotorua. This place is interesting with interactive display for kids and the models are amazingly detailed and educational. The couple that runs this place is so dedicated and talented!

We spent a very cold and rainy day in Rotorua, looking for possible indoor activities. So we dropped in to Bibleworld. A very enjoyable and informative visit - the displays are well presented, just enough detail to absorb and the interactive quiz exhibits are fun...More

Detailed displays and sufficient information on both the Old Testament and the New Testament. We were quite surprised that we ended up spending over an hour and a half there considering it's small space!

An excellent all weather attraction! Although the museum is oh SO child friendly it is quiet and peaceful for adult visitors without children too. We spent half a day there with two children aged 3 and 5.
