Visiting During COVID-19 Alert Levels

Nau mai! Haere mai! We are delighted to welcome you back to MOTAT.

MOTAT IS OPEN!

Nau mai! Haere mai! Welcome back to MOTAT.

Our priority is to keep you and our team safe. We are carefully following the Alert Level guidelines put in place by the Government. This means your visit will be a little different during Levels 2 and 1. Our friendly hosts are here to guide you through your visit and any questions you might have.


OPENING HOURS DURING LEVEL 2

Tuesday to Sunday, 10am-4pm. (Closed on Mondays)


50% OFF OUR NORMAL TICKET PRICE DURING LEVEL 2

The admission fee for entry to MOTAT includes access to BOTH MOTAT sites, M1 Great North Rd and M2 Meola Rd. More pricing details here.


CONTACT TRACING

When you visit MOTAT we will have signs up for you to scan MOTAT's NZ COVID Tracer QR code so you can record your visit on the Ministry of Health NZ COVID Tracer app.

Help protect yourself, your whānau and your wider community. Our hosts will be on hand to help you with any questions.


WHAT'S NOT AVAILABLE AT LEVEL 2

Trams
Our tram service will not operate at Level 2. Visitors will need to walk or arrange their own transport between our M1 and M2 sites. There is public parking around both sites and also keep in mind that your General Admission ticket is valid to visit each site once within a 30-day period. So you could spread your visit over two days.

Exhibitions and spaces that are closed during Level 2 are:
- MOTOTS, under five's play area
- Scooter exhibition space in the Village Gallery
- The Print Shop
- Model Railway spaces

We apologise for the inconvenience while we ensure strict health and safety measures are in place under Level 2.


SANITISATION AND CLEANING

MOTAT is taking extra measures to protect the health of our visitors and staff. These include:

  • Sanitisation stations across the Museum.

  • Extensive cleaning schedules across both sites.

  • Daily closure at 4pm to accommodate additional cleaning outside of visitor operating hours.

  • Closed on Mondays to allow us to carry out deep cleaning across the Museum.
