About World Of Wearable Art And Classic Cars Museum, Nelson

You were not expecting to find something like this in this sleepy looking town. These two very distinct exhibits are nevertheless treated as a single entity. The first section (Wearable Art) showcases the garments of the Wellington World of WearableArt Awards, a show famed for its celebration of creative freedom. The displays are set on moving mannequins that then model the outrageous and imaginative costumes to music. It’s startling, intriguing and memorable.

The second part of the museum is hardly less impressive.Bright paint, dazzling chrome and soft, rich upholstery; a hundred classic cars exquisitely maintained and displayed in a manner to showcase to evolution of the vehicle. The museum keeps a dedicated team of mechanics to maintain and restore these beauties. Even for non-autophiles, the displays are so beautifully arranged, that it’ll invoke an almost childlike sense of wonder. And it well should… these are all treasures, from the 1908 Renault AX to the Caddilac Coupe De Ville

  • Fantastic display with the outfits well lit with video displays behind most to show them in the show situation. It was absolutely stunning. The car museum next to it is included in the admission price with some fantastic cars and some everyday cars maybe they could be a bit wider spaced to allow you to walk down the sides. Worth every cent

  • The person who came up with this idea was a genius. Cars for the guys and dresses for the gals in the same place. Win win everyone happy. Even a cafe if you need a break. Cars...There are 100s of them all in pristine condition and I gather there were a whole bunch of weird dresses as well. Entry is $24 adult, $10 children.

  • Fantastic museum with being able to get close to see amazing wow outfits. Not as many on display as thought there might be for how long it's been going, just a small selection from most recent show. HUGE range of classic cars to look at. Even if you're not really into cars will very cool. Only thing that lets this place down is food at cafe ( plus noisy) and toilets. We smelt then when first walked passed entering the museum, even worse inside- obviously havn't had a thorough clean in long time, just basic wipe over.

  • The museum surprisingly contains a substantial number of Wearable art items and the collection of classic cars is superb, and will suit most levels of interest. There is an on-site cafe and gift shop selling New Zealand products. The museum is easily accessed from the town centre and is near good walks so a combined trip is worthwhile.

  • Overpriced entrance fee. Really thought there would have been more of the wearable art. Mother said big disappointment compared to what it was about 8 years ago. What was there was interesting.
