Celebrate the decade which saw New Zealand change from a
colony to a dominion within the British Empire by coming along to MOTAT for Good Old Days this month. Listen to the Oral Histories from the 1900s in the Walsh Memorial Library and learn what life was like over a century ago. Stroll through the picturesque grounds while enjoying the delightful sounds of live music. In the theme of the decade, and to celebrate the dawn of a new century, this month’s Good Old Days features a live harpist. The romantic gentle sound of the harp was often heard throughout the 1900s by those enjoying their leisure time. Head back to an era which predated such things as Vogel’s or Ploughman’s bread, and watch our specialty bread maker working their magic. There will be demonstrations and even a chance for a sneaky nibble! While you are here, make sure you spend some time checking out our new vehicle exhibition, Accelerate: Driving New Zealand which delves into the past, present, and future of New Zealand’s relationship with vehicles. This includes an example of the iconic Model T Ford or “Tin Lizzie” which became famous in the 1900s. Discover how the world was introduced to this revolutionary vehicle in 1908 and how it went on to make a remarkable impact upon society. Accelerate revisits some of the museum’s most cherished vehicles, whilst introducing new cars and the stories of the people who love them.
