Ongoing funding is needed so we comply with Heritage regulations to ensure the historical integrity of this iconic building is maintained.
Built around 1877, the Engineer's Cottage is a heritage listed building and is the only cottage in the village to have been built on the MOTAT site. It was the second building on this site, following the Pumphouse.
It is vital MOTAT continues to maintain this cottage so future generation will be able to visit and enjoy it as a piece of Auckland's history. MOTAT will ensure the cottage will be accurately conserved and restored so that visitors will have an authentic experience when they visit.
MOTAT is New Zealand’s largest museum of its kind. Located in Auckland’s Western Springs.
Celebrating NZ’s past, present, and future, MOTAT endeavours to educate and inspire the innovators of tomorrow through creative and innovative initiatives.
The money raised will be used to
outsource components of the remaining work. All other work is to be completed by MOTAT's tramway volunteers.
