MOTAT, Auckland’s Museum of Transport and Technology, is New Zealand’s largest transport, technology and social history museum. Spread across 40 acres, MOTAT will take you on an interactive journey to explore and discover the achievements that have helped shape New Zealand.
The MOTAT Road Collection highlights the development of New Zealand’s road transport, from the horse-drawn cart to the modern car. The extensive road collection includes over 100 motor cars, horse-drawn vehicles, road building vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles, commercial vehicles and various other items such as cutaway engines, tools, petrol pumps and car parts.
Our Collection includes the only Solent Mark IV Flying Boat left in the World and a rare World War 2 era Avro Lancaster Bomber. Visitors will also be able to see aircraft which saw service with the Royal New Zealand Air Force such as the de Havilland Mosquito and the modern Skyhawk and Aermacchi.
