Good Old Days

Celebrate the roaring 20s, fabulous 40s or the swinging 60s. Each month we bring to life a different era from the 1900s to the 1980s. Enjoy live music, food offerings and guided tours highlighting objects from the MOTAT collection. On the first Wednesday of each month visit MOTAT and be transported back to the good old days.

Join us on Wednesday 1 November as we journey back to the 1920’s.

Travel on a heritage tram between both our sites and enjoy a range of entertainment and activities taking place from 10am till 2pm. Enjoy a tour at our award-winning Aviation Display Hall as our guides reveal the intriguing histories that surround our world class aircraft collection. You can also join in a tour of the MOTAT Village and our historic Pumphouse. Please note that these tours are designed to be wheelchair accessible.

Enjoy a fashion show displaying glorious fashions from the "Cloche and Flapper" decade. A live jazz band will perform music while dancers display Charleston dancing. Visitors are encouraged to kick up their heels dancing and can join in lessons with the professional dancers. For those just looking to relax and soak in the ambience we’ve got you covered too! Take five and listen to fascinating Oral History stories from the Walsh Memorial Library - it’s sure to be a treat.

Our café Coffee Cruiser will be available with light snacks and refreshments and a special combo for SuperGold Card holders during the event. As always, MOTAT admission is free for all SuperGold Card holders. General admission applies for all other visitors (excluding escorting staff).

10am - 2pm
