MOTAT Changes the Structure of Its Entry Fees

MOTAT Changes the Structure of Its Entry Fees

After holding its entry fees at the same rate for the past three years, the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) has announced that it will be restructuring its general admission fees and giving Super Gold Card holders free entry from 1 July 2013.

Museum Director, Michael Frawley explains the slight fee increase will help to offset the increasing costs involved in growing and continually improving the Museum for the future, ensuring MOTAT is a place that all Aucklanders want to visit and recommend to their visitors.

“Since 2010 when the current entry fees were set, MOTAT has added a state-of-the-art Aviation Display Hall for visitors to enjoy, and we are committed to further developing the infrastructure of the Museum to improve our offering to the public, now and into the future,” Mr Frawley says.

“MOTAT aims to provide a positive learning experience for the whole family and as such has chosen not to raise entrance fees for children.”

Additionally, Mr Frawley says he is looking forward to giving all senior citizens with a Super Gold Card unlimited free entry to the Museum.

“We recognise the special contribution that senior citizens make to the community as a whole and to MOTAT specifically. A number have contributed objects to MOTAT’s vast collection and their invaluable input, knowledge and support help contribute to the rich history we have here at MOTAT,” says Mr Frawley.

“Providing free entry to Gold Card holders is just a small way that MOTAT can show its appreciation to the many senior citizens who have volunteered their time and shared the benefit of their experience. We hope to encourage senior citizens to take advantage of this offer and bring along their grandchildren so that they can share the joy of MOTAT with the next generation.”

MOTAT is launching the new offer for Super Gold Card holders with an introductory week of free admission running from 10-16 June, so seniors can sample their new benefit as early as next month. 

MOTAT Entry Fees from 1 July 2013:

General Admission
$16 adults (currently $14)
$8 students/children 5-16yrs (unchanged)
$FREE children under 5 (unchanged)
$FREE seniors with Super Gold Card (currently $7)
$40 family pass (2 adults, 4 children) (currently $35)

MOTAT Mates Annual Passes
$75 Family Annual Pass (2 adults, 4 children) (currently $65)
$40 Individual Annual Pass (currently $35)
$20 Student Annual Pass (unchanged)
