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

  • WoW museum is definitely wow!! If you love fashion and cars than make you’re way over for a visit. It’s not a large museum but it’s visually stimulating with the incredible displays of wearable art (very inspiring) and beautifully restored vintage cars. I spent about 1-1.5 hrs here and felt this was enough time. Would highly recommend it!

  • Great designs of costumes with international flavour. Awesome experience. Car museum next door showcases classic cars of various models. A must see for the car enthusiasts.

  • 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

  • WOW is amazing! The costumes are part of a yearly competition and they're fantastic. The videos are great as well. The car collection is impressive and the signage isn't bad but could use a better layout or theme to sort/display the cars. Also, the entry price is a little steep, but all in all, a great place to visit.

  • 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.
