Museum Of Transport And Technology, Auckland Reviews
Went to MOTAT with our 2 year old for the bubbles day and he had a blast! The event was fun and enjoyable across all ages. For the second half of the day, we went onto the tram ride for $2 and visited the aviation museum and that was fantastic as well. I do feel that the place has so much potential with the space and hope to see it improve in the future, perhaps heading in the direction of a Science Museum which is lacking in NZ.
Excellent place to learn about New Zealand transport and technology. Has a nice cafe too. Plenty of toilets, ok for wheelchairs. Pity there aren't human guides. I had lots of questions. There must have been 200 school kids present when we went. Better to go when they are at home. Less noisy, some things I couldn't hear on the audiovisuals due to the children.
Amazing place to take your kids! Lots of engineering type stuff; cars, steam engines, telecommunications, aviation etc. Better on the weekend as mid-week we had to contend with school trips and a quite a few exhibits were shut. Great little restaurant in a villa, and the staff were very very helpful!
School trip. Some great stuff there. Amazing card but a tiny bit dead pan. Has improved all t I remember it 45 years ago on my own school trip. Cool stuff. Good pictures
Hard to rate.... Aviation section is fantastic! Main section, don't even bother. Transport? Has a couple of of trams and buses and that's it. I was expecting a car collection. Nope. Trucks? One or two... And the cafe? Just don't. So, aircraft? Outstanding! Then go home
