As part of New Zealand Volunteer Awareness Week (Sunday 19 – Saturday 25 June), MOTAT is opening its gates to the public free of charge throughout June in celebration of its tireless volunteers.
Jeremy Hubbard, Museum Director at MOTAT, said that MOTAT’s volunteers are very much the backbone of the Museum. “All our volunteers have this amazing passion and enthusiasm for what they do, I definitely think that rubs off on our visitors and makes MOTAT the special place that it is.”
