In association with the 2018 Auckland Heritage Festival and aligning with this year’s theme: Nga iwi o Tamaki Makaurau – Celebrating the heritage of our people.

Explore New Zealand’s social history and the industrial technologies of our past at MOTAT’s September/October holiday experience, The Old Country to Our Country.

With loads of hands-on activities kids can step back in time to a period of popular migration to New Zealand which greatly contributed to the multicultural society we are today. This heritage and culture focussed holiday experience will introduce youngsters to the stories of those who set forth on the long voyage to New Zealand in search of opportunity, and how this period helped shape the proudly diverse nation we have become
