Museum Of Transport And Technology, Auckland Reviews
This is a museum that’s has something for everyone, young & old. Engaging exhibits from all time periods. Easy to get to & parking was not a problem. Take the trams up to the aerospace museum for a mind blowing treat....no spoilers....😎 Block out s few hrs as there is a lot to see. Little ones will not be board with all the tactile exhibits mom n dad may be a bit worn out so there are a few places to relax & have some snacks. All in all a good day out.
Wow, this place has a whole lot of stuff to look at. Great displays, with fantastic information to go along with it. They have a collection of some of the most fascinating aircraft. Because this place is so spread out, there is a tram that will take you to all of the different areas. The tram is also an exhibit! I do wish they had more automobiles. But they certainly had enough things to entertain me for the time I was there! A great place if you have children. Allow an entire day to explore all of the areas. I suppose I'll just have to come back to New Zealand to see the rest.
Great place to take the kids, cool free military, tram & train rides on 'live' days plus heaps of other activities. Free for special needs children & one carer!! The cafe on site is hideously expensive but doesn't do a bad coffee actually. Heaps of parking available
Awesome place to take the kids. A good mix of hands on activities and exhibits just to look at. Not as spread out as the map would have you believe so not too bad on a wet day, if you're lucky they'll have an umbrella for you to use
If we aim at London or San Fransisco's similar museums, it has lots of room for improvement (I know money is a major issue though) My recent visit (20/1/2018) has changed my view. It now has lots of new stuff and deserves a 5 star review! Well done!
