MOTAT Offers Free Ticket to Auckland Central Residents

Auckland Central residents can look forward to free fun and interactive experiences at MOTAT this month.

From now until 31 August, Auckland Central residents will gain free entry to MOTAT by presenting vouchers that will appear in local papers and letter boxes throughout the month, vouchers available at local libraries, or by displaying their rates bill or proof of address on entry.

MOTAT Museum Director Jeremy Hubbard says that MOTAT prides itself on offering exciting and fresh exhibitions that bring to life New Zealand’s transport history.

“All our exhibitions offer visitors the chance to engage with a piece of history that is truly unique to New Zealand, the Pumphouse for example was one reason MOTAT was founded. We want to offer Auckland Central residents the chance to reconnect with this part of New Zealand history,” says Mr Hubbard.

“We have something for every member of the family, whether it’s mum or dad interested in the history of our transport collection, or the kids who can’t wait to jump into Voyager1 or explore the Tactile Dome.”

August is a great time to visit MOTAT with plenty of activity happening, see MOTAT’s new blacksmith in action every Sunday between 10 – 5pm or enjoy MOTAT’s Third Sunday of the Month on the 21 August with radio controlled tanks, steam train rides and high tea and etiquette lessons.

NOTE: visit if you have any queries about whether your suburb is eligible.

Dates: Now – 31 August 2011

Location: MOTAT, Great North Road, Western Springs.

Costs: Entry is free for all Auckland Central residents on presentation of a voucher / ad, their rates bill or proof of address.
