  • FANTASTIC INTERESTING museum for all ages. You can catch the OUT bus from Auckland Central and get off at the first part of the museum. Your entrance fee includes a tram ticket which is a fun 5 minute ride to the rest of the museum. You can choose to hop off and go to the zoo too. The museum consists of a number of very educational displays including historic planes and a video/display on Jean Batten, info on Skylab's rocket, all sorts of old machines and inter-active fun activities. People of all ages will love this place 😊

  • Enjoyable but somehow not quite the experience of 30 odd years ago. It seemed to me to be pretty much geared up as a marketing experience for children rather than a museum. Still, having said that, I was there with my children and their children and it was a good day out. They all enjoyed the ride on the tram to the Aviation section and that was excellent in every way. So, perhaps I should up my rating to 4 stars! Thank you.

  • We so much fun but wished I’d had more time there. You definitely need to have 4-5 hours there for the full experience. Being there for a live day made it so much better and getting to meet some of the people working on the machines and exhibits helped me to appreciate it even more. There is something at MOTAT for everyone and I would highly recommend it.

  • I had a superb time visiting this museum. Lots of displays on so many different topics. Very reasonable admission charge includes free trolley to their second location, which is a fun experience by itself. I was particularly impressed with the old, yet operating, huge stationary steam engines. Rare to see live steam engines these days. The operating telephone switching racks were fascinating, with the complex relay mechanisms clicking away. Also, I enjoyed the old radios, TVs, and computer equipment. (But ones that I've used shouldn't already be displayed in museums!) Of particular interest to other Geeks like me is the analog computer built from Erector set parts. I had heard of them, but what fun to actually see one.

  • Incredible museum, one of the best of its kind. Amazing airplanes collection and interesting activities for children. It was sunny, then we had a good chance to walk all over the area. Reserve 2 to 3 hours to explore it. Take the tram that goes around the Zoo and come back, included in the ticket. If I live in Auckland area, would buy the annual family ticket, worth the value to take our kids as much as we can.
