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

Their collection of classic cars is amazing! They have over 100 amazing cars! The setup in the first hall is really cool. They've built a bit of a scenery around some cars. The fact that the workshop where they fix up the cars is open, is nice as well. You can have a peek inside and see what they're working on. If you're in Nelson, go visit!
Interesting museum to visit. I'm not a very fashionable person nor a car enthusiast, but i'm sure if you are it would have been a great place to visit. For me a $24 adult ticket for an hour and a half walk through the museum, looking at fashion and cars was just okay. It was quiet on a Monday afternoon.
Great museum! The wearable art pieces are incredible. You get to get up close to see the amazing craftsmanship and hardworking that goes into each piece. The classic car museum is an added bonus.
Forget all the wearable "art" which is frankly strange, go directly to the vehicle display which had many interesting and rare cars combined with some nicely restored classics. Don't miss out on the extra collection accessed from the rear of the main museum. This is co-located with a vehicle restoration workshop
Incredible arts and collections, a must see especially if your a motor enthusiast. Pricing may seem a bit scary initially but when your finished it'll be justified. Coffee was also very good.
