MOTAT offers a fun, interactive and educational day out based on New Zealand's transport, technology and social history.
Ride a tram, see the Pumphouse in action, take a guided tour of the rail workshop, wander through the Victorian Village, marvel at the award-winning Aviation Display Hall (housing one of the largest aviation collections in the Southern Hemisphere), enjoy lunch at the cafe and explore the extensive collection of objects telling stories of New Zealand aviation, printing, road transport, trams, steam, military, telecommunications and rail.
Kids especially love to explore the Mirror Maze, Tactile Dome and interactive science and technology zone.
MOTAT also offers a range of fantastic Birthday Parties and unique venue spaces for hire. Visit
