Thanks to the support of our main sponsor Genesis Energy, the staff time and resources of the Taupo for Tomorrow Programme are provided free of charge.

However, there is a site charge for groups entering the museum and aquarium. There is a charge of $50.00 dollars for school groups of up to 40 kids and adults which goes to support the National Trout Centre Society and their great work at the site. For groups of students and adults numbering 40 to 100 students and adults the site charge is $100.00. Tertiary/adult groups are double these prices (please see table below)


The price for kids fishing is $10.00 per student in addition to the site charge.

If you do not wish to enter the museum and aquarium there will be no site charge for your visit.

Our preferred payment method is at the time of your visit - cash or card are accepted. If this is not possible, we are able to generate an invoice for your visit. All invoices must be paid by the date of your visit.
