Changing Gear

Since the first rickety boneshaker hit Aotearoa’s cobbled streets, Kiwis have embraced the spirit of the bicycle – adapting its shape to fit our needs and using it as a tool for change. From the great outdoors to urban streets, we use bicycles to shape our environment and enrich our lives. Where will they take us next?

MOTAT’s new exhibition, Changing Gear, explores the fascinating history of cycling in New Zealand and the growth of cycling across the country. Showcasing some of the innovations in the world of bikes, from the high tech to the quirky!

With plenty of interactives and digital experiences such as playing digital dress ups in cycling clothes throughout the ages and experiencing the thrill of riding a BMX - there will be heaps of hands on activities to spin your wheels!

General admission applies.
