What is Art Deco? It’s a culture of architecture and development born in the 1920’s and revived in the mid 20th century. It represents the dawning of the technological age and the faith that the last century put in technology in solving the world’s problems.. and this includes social technology such as the liberation of woman. All these themes are resplendents in the bulding of Napier, and the Trust works to preserve that heritage by sustainin intrerst. That’s why the city is rightly known as the Art Deco Capital Of The World. The trust emphasises the supreme achievement of the city in reviving itself after the devastating earthquake that tore it apart in February 1931. For tourists, the Trust provides the facility of various tours, whether walking, bus or cruise. Check out which one is for you. History lessons don’t get more fun than this.

It's a curious shop for Art Deco fans but there are plenty of them around too that might have cheaper prices. The people who work inside are dressed up too. If you just want a cheap 20s dress, you'd better get it online half the price, unless you are looking for some vintage real thing
Great helpful and knowledable staff, free dress up clothes for photos available. Great art deco knick knacks, clothes, decor, calendar, posters etc great location with car parks outside. Art deco tours leave from there too. Great place to get Napier souvenirs from and great to have a look around.
Nicely done. Charming staff. Interesting shop. Good intro to Napier Art Deco
They do a very good tour which is started with a short movie explaining the history behind the art deco architecture. Well worth the time.
Find so attractive items there. So many toys of my childhood. Antique items. Jewellery fr women and items for men.
