Have you got a query regarding the MOTAT collection?

For information about specific collection items, please visit our Collection Online section. It is our policy to loan collection objects to museums and heritage institutions only.

If you're interested in donating something to MOTAT, please note the following:

  • MOTAT has an acquisition process in place which must be followed.
  • Unless they hold extraordinary significance, MOTAT is not accepting common domestic items (eg doilies, sewing machines, typewriters, lawnmowers and film projectors) as these are already well represented in the collection.
  • All donation offers are assessed to determine whether they fall within our collecting strategy and MOTAT can only accept donations for which the donor has legal title.

The Collection encompasses objects from the following areas:
