Ever wondered what it might be like to be a soldier in war? MOTAT challenges you to step back in time and face a turbulent part of history first-hand at the annual Military Weekend.

With interactive activities, thrilling re-enactments, live displays and military vehicle rides, the whole family can experience what military life was like for New Zealanders who fought in War.

Try food in ‘military fare’ style inside the mess tent or experience Wartime in New Zealand at the Great North Road site where home guards and red cross nurses will be in action.

Come and hear the stirring “last post” at 1pm on Saturday and Sunday, as a tribute to NZ soldiers past and present. MOTAT’s collection of wartime memorabilia will be on display as well as military aircraft restored by MOTAT’s staff and volunteers (including veterans of WWII), and military vehicles dating back as early as WWI.

Round up the troops and get to MOTAT for an action-packed weekend that will be hard to forget. You can enjoy Military Weekend free with normal admission costs to MOTAT.
