Located in the Discovery Dome ‘Screamin Motors’ will test your skills with a range of arcade style racing games set up so visitors can compete and challenge one another, competing to be the ultimate winner. Kids will also have a chance to play with slot-car sets in ‘Slot-Car Madness’ and ‘Jet Racer’ a build-your-own activity whereby visitors will design and build their very own balloon powered Jet Racer car - tracks will be available for visitors to race to see who can go further and faster.

Grab yourself a roadmap and complete the MOTAT ‘Walk of Fame’ to see the stars in our collection.   A self-guided trail across both MOTAT sites, visitors will view a selection of highlights from the Collection and the newest exhibition ‘Kiwi Stars and Cars’ that goes beyond the vehicles to highlight the stories behind the famous Kiwis that drove them and ‘Motor Nation’, the exhibition which explores Kiwis’ love of the motor car.
