Museum of Transport and Technology
While most trips to New Zealand highlight the country's natural wonders, MOTAT focuses on the technological innovations and ingenuity of the Kiwis. A large aviation, steam-power and vehicular collection details New Zealand's transportation history, with interactive exhibitions revealing the science behind everyday objects. The museum is located in Western Springs, a 10-minute ride from the Central Business District (called the CBD) and across the park from the Auckland Zoo. Visit the website to plan your visit and bookmark all the exhibits you don't want to miss.
