Teachers visit for free this April!

MOTAT is celebrating all teachers and teaching students by offering free general admission throughout April.

Date & Time

April at MOTAT is all about teachers!

To celebrate these amazing education professionals, we would like to offer teachers, pre-service teaching students, and their families free entry throughout April.

If you are a teacher, lecturer, teaching support worker, a student teacher, or enrolled in a recognised teacher training programme, simply bring in your current Practicing Certificate, School or Home Educator ID to receive free entry.

It’s our way of giving a little something back to those who are helping to inspire our young innovators of tomorrow.

Share the love with your fellow colleagues and print out the below poster for your staffroom.
