The most spine tingling time of the year is here again! Celebrate Halloween with MOTAT’s annual Olde Hallows Eve event. Join us on 29 October from 7pm and discover masked monsters and ghostly apparitions in this uniquely frightening event that wherever you turn there is something new to discover.
The Idea Collective is MOTAT's newest contemporary innovation space and is a dynamic, evolving and collaborative project.
This Christmas programme is based around the much loved Kiwi classic "Pukeko in a Pongo Tree". It looks at different, historical ways people have celebrated Christmas in New Zealand.
Supported with a Christmas-themed scavenger hunt around MOTAT, Pukeko in a Ponga Tree is a fun-filled end of year trip to celebrate a year of learning with your students.
The Museum will not be receiving any new donations until after 30 June 2016.
Now available for function hire, The Idea Collective is an artistic collaborative installation at MOTAT. Celebrating New Zealand’s vibrant innovation culture, The Idea Collective brings together a diverse set of visionaries, artists, designers and technologists to create a range of exciting displays and experiences.
Donations and bequests. MOTAT is grateful for the support it receives from donors.
