A little about us
MOTAT opened in 1964 and since then has been explored by millions of local, national and international visitors. MOTAT is an interactive museum with a focus on creating a visually stimulating environment for its visitors. Children love their experience here.
The aviation collection with over 30 aircraft is impressive. Amongst the exhibits is the British heavy weight bomber of WW2, the Avro Lancaster and the beautiful wooden wonder, the de Havilland Mosquito. New Zealand's female aviator heroine Jean Batten's numerous medals and trophies are on display.
