Aviation Display Hall

The Aviation Display Hall at MOTAT is home to one of the world's most unique aircraft collections and tells the story of military and civil aviation in New Zealand.

Our stunning facility has hosted some of our nation's most prestigious events, award ceremonies, gala dinners and more. It is our pleasure to open our doors after-hours and offer our award-winning exhibition space as a unique venue for your unforgettable event.

Welcome your guests with a cocktail hour under the nose of the Avro Lancaster Bomber before ushering them down the runway, complete with custom lighting, to dine beneath the impressive Sunderland flying boat. Finish the evening with music and dancing, taking in the spectacular view of our aircraft collection.

Such an experience your guests will remember forever. Host up to 550 guests in cocktail style arrangement or 400 for a seated dinner.

Expert audio visuals and lighting supplied by Multi-Media Systems and delicious catering by our functions partner, Montana Food and Events.
