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

Really cool displays and I enjoyed the clothing and fashion exhibition a lot more than I thought I would. The collection of classic cars was huge too. Loads to see with a good range of information to go along with the items on show too. Well worth a visit.
A unique display. Mixture of cars and wearable art. Not cheap to visit, but if it's wet or cold day it's something to do
I spent a great couple of hours here one day when the rain kept me from the outdoors. The cafe was also excellent. I concentrated on the costumes, though it looked like they and some interesting cars in the two large warehouse rooms dedicated to that. There were 70 costumes on display the day I was there, all from the 2016 WOW competition. As well as being works of art that could be worn most were made out of very unusual materials which made the costumes even more interesting. Amazing things were done with plastic ties, one costume used weed barrier, another was made of wood veneer. There was also a very interesting 30 minute video of the 2016 competition. Definitely put this on your list. Great for the whole family.
Well worth a visit! Fantastic wearable art costumes and amazing car collection!
The best way to finish our WOW, trip to Wellie, more details, things i learnt that show not explained + the cars, the cars =wow!
