Not really my cup of tea but its huge, and loads to learn about transport and technology over the years, and see how it has all evolved. Staff are nice and informative, and you can stroll on through in your own time, taking as long as you want or need to look at everything.
Amazing place to take the children. The tram was a fun experience. So much interactive activities for them to do. Lovely café with excellent coffee, and the children loved the glimpse into the past in the old village. Will definitely be returning.
Really great day out to haul the kids away from modern technology. This vast array of the previous years machines, vehicles,planes,motors will get them playing and active. The staff are very helpful and the kids really enjoyed going to the colonial village. Well worth this outing.
A day at Motat is always a good day out. There are awesome temporary displays brought in from all over New Zealand and the airoplanes are really cool. There is always something new to play with and explore, we always find something different. The Motots area for toddlers is great when you want to get away from the noisiness of the rest of the place. The kids can run free and you can sit down and catch your breath. The staff here are always friendly and informative.
Great place for kids, lots to look at... was a bit disappointed to find out that they had gotten rid of their mirror maze, tic tac toe and the games room... however in saying that these things were replaced with other things for kids to look at and do
Some good exhibitions, but very disappointing barely a vehicle for the kids to explore......going back you could climb on fire trucks/trains etc but no more. Would love to see some old cars/vehicles the kids could climb in/on
Loads of history to be learnt from here and tram rides! Right in the centre of western springs, its in a central location with loads of street parking. The staff here are friendly and very observant with visitors, and make general small talk with you when they can. Will gladly visit over and over again.
Went after not having been for years and years - I love that they have kept some of the classic aspects I loved as a kid like the victorian village but they constantly have new exhibits on. The gift shop could benefit from having some more on-theme gifts and souvenirs rather than mostly generic toys.
