MOTAT (Museum of Transport and Technology) MAKE ENQUIRY
Revved up, fully charged, and challenging the status quo! MOTAT’s latest exhibition, Accelerate: Driving New Zealand, delves into the past, present and future of New Zealand’s relationship with vehicles.
Opening Friday 22 June, Accelerate brings a new perspective to the MOTAT road transport collection while exploring the technologies, social impacts, and culture associated with automobiles. It revisits some of the museum’s most cherished vehicles, whilst introducing new cars and the stories of the people who love them. This one’s for the petrol heads, tech enthusiasts, history buffs, and future thinkers alike.
The exhibition collates an impressive collection of artefacts, audiovisuals, and activities which reflect the significance of vehicle technology with an emphasis on looking forward to the future. These machines gave our isolated nation the freedom to dream, to conquer new frontiers and to push the boundaries of convention. Where will they take us next? Discover the stories, explore the possibilities and join the conversation.
Accelerate is a thought-provoking long-term exhibition with feature objects scheduled to be switched out periodically, giving visitors new and exciting reasons to visit time and time again.
