MOTAT is committed to developing and improving access to MOTAT for all

  • The Museum offers visitors with impairments and their caregivers free general admission entry daily between our open hours of 10am - 4pm. Just ask for the accessibility offer at the ticket counter. You do not need to present any identification, nor book in advance.

You can get to MOTAT by car, taxi, or by public transport and there is mobility parking available at both museum locations at Great North Road and Motions Road, Western Springs.

Service dogs are welcome at the Museum.  


Mobility parking at the Aviation Hall, Motions Road
Mobility parking is at the entrance to the Aviation Hall. No pre-booking is required.

Mobility parking at MOTAT Great North Road
Parking is inside the Museum gates so needs to be booked in advance. This can be done by calling our helpful team on 09 815 5800 or emailing enquiries@motat.org.nz.


Many of MOTAT’s public spaces are accessible, but as we are an operational museum spread over a large area with varying terrain, unfortunately not all areas are suitable for wheelchair access.

Areas with wheelchair access include exhibition halls and display spaces, the MOTAT Café and and the MOTAT Shops.

Both MOTAT locations have accessible toilet facilities and locations are shown on the map.

We have a limited number of wheelchairs available for use while you are at the Museum so please get in touch before your visit for information.
