Event Details

As a result of the latest Government measures to contain COVID-19, the DIG IT! event at MOTAT have been cancelled.

MOTAT remains open as they actively monitor the situation and follow the New Zealand Ministry of Health’s expert advice.  They are managing the risks to ensure the Museum remains a safe and welcoming space for everyone during this unprecedented situation. MOTAT’s team is working closely with suppliers, communities and authorities to put additional mitigation measures in place wherever possible.

Dirt, grease, and big machines!  ‘Dig It!’ returns to MOTAT for three days of noisy fun and learning this March.

Young kids are fascinated by heavy machinery of all kinds.  Dig It! is a construction-themed event full of interactive and fun activities that encourage kids to explore, be curious and ignites imaginations.

Come and explore the impressive machinery on display, get hands-on in the Construction Zone, and even operate Doug the Digger!

This action-packed event encourages hands-on and discovery-based learning for kids in a fun and safe environment.

Please note some age/height restrictions may apply to operating the Digger.
