Support MOTAT

MOTAT is a charity organisation. The following options outline ways you or your business can contribute to the future of the Museum. 



Donations are always warmly welcome—in fact they are essential to the ongoing restoration and conservation of our collections and buildings. We value every donor and thank you for your strong support of our work. While much of our funding is provided by Auckland Council, we are dependent upon the generosity of our supporters and partners to ensure that we are able to share our collections with current and future generations of Kiwis and international visitors. Donations over $5 are eligible for tax credits. MOTAT is a non-profit registered charitable trust and donor organisation, Charity number CC30945. 


Bequests are an effective way of keeping the very heart of this respected institution beating and helping to guarantee the long-term future of MOTAT. Leaving a gift in your Will is one easy way you can contribute to MOTAT’s mission to be the “must experience” venue that uses New Zealand heritage, Kiwi Ingenuity, Transport, Technology and Associated Stories in an interactive way to educate and inspire the innovators of tomorrow. Your contribution will make a huge difference today and long into the future.
