MOTAT - Travel through time

Motat has a special place in Aucklander's hearts.  Motat 1, located at Western Springs is approximately 15 minutes drive from the CBD.  Along with trains, engines and cars from yesteryear, The Idea Collective has new technlogies like 3D printing on show. There are new exhibitions featuring regularly to take your guests through pre or post event - or take the tram through to Motat 2 Aviation Display Hall.  


Aviation Display Hall  You never forget an event at the Aviation Hall.  Create a checkin desk, have your welcome cocktails surrounded by memorabilia, sound the air raid siren, light up the runway lights and wow your guests with one of the greatest "reveals".  Simple uplights on the planes are all you need but if you want more, put in a stage and ask the "Andrew Sisters" to perform.  Aviation Hall is around 15 mins drive from the city with plenty of parking.  Available from 6pm 7 days a week.  

Watch this set up video to see how the magic works!
