MOTAT What's On And Current Events

Activities, Exhibitions and Events, Special Exhibitions 1999

SOUNDS AMAZING, Until 17 October 1999

This exhibition comes to us from The Science Centre and Manawatu Museum. The focus is sound and the theme areas explore what sound is, how it is created, how it is measured, how it travels, how it is received and analysed by the ear, and how human hearing can be enhanced and repaired.

COMMUNICATIONS
Until 17 October 1999

A complimentary exhibition to Sounds Amazing and also on loan from The Science Centre and Manawatu Museum. Some of the different communication technologies are available for the visitor to try and compare. The exhibits range from pictograms to morse code, from tin can phones to fibre optics.

Other Exhibitions and Events

MOTAT's exhibition halls offer exciting displays using exhibits from our extensive collections to tell the stories of the people who built and used New Zealand’s early technology.

The permanent exhibitions include the Victorian Village, the New Zealand Pioneers of Aviation, Road Transport, Agriculture and other Primary Industries, Telecommunications and an Electrical collection.
