In an effort to future-proof MOTAT and the wider Western Springs precinct, we are constructing a new 155 space car park at our M2 - Meola Road site. The car park will improve parking and accessibility in Western Springs and will facilitate the installation of cycle and walkways.
From July 26, 2021, M2 the home of our Aviation Display Hall, Rail and Military workshops will be closed to the public. The MOTAT Great North Road site will remain open and trams will continue to operate a shorter loop from MOTAT to Auckland Zoo and back. Our Great North Road site will be a continuous hive of activities with a calendar of exciting events, permanent and changing exhibitions, and new interactive experiences.
We apologise for any inconvenience the construction may cause to your MOTAT visit but by doing this work now, we hope to provide a better visitor experience to you in the future.
The car park is part of our larger plan to redesign the MOTAT experience, starting with re-developing the way you interact with our collection objects.
