MOTAT’s Master Strategy creates a number of opportunities for long term, mutually beneficial partnerships.

The strategy provides a plan to move the museum from being a 'collection of things' to a ‘light bulb institution’ that will demonstrate the best that Aotearoa innovators have to offer.

We want to collaborate with organisations who share an alignment with our strategic objectives, in the process creating bespoke and truly innovative partnerships with clear and measurable business benefits
