Amazing art of the wearable kind. Good mix of static displays and videos playing. Showed how much the show has changed over the many years. Left wanting to see more. Cars interesting enough but would have like more of the wow, just a personal preference!
Easy to find, plenty of parking, staff friendly and price ok

I loved everything about this Museum....had very interesting and quirky exhibits. The cars are all in great condition and varied between American and British cars. The WOW exhibits were my favourite. Highly recommend a visit when in Nelson.

I enjoyed looking at the wearable arts. I was disappointed that I had to pay entry to see both the wearable arts and classic cars. I would rather have paid less and just visited the part of the museum that interested me.

Hubby and I got the opportunity to visit this fabulous museum of wearable art and classic cars. The skill in the outfits was amazing. I would love to see the live show one day in Wellington. The selection of classic cars was unbelievable. If you get the chance, visiting this museum is a must. Not too far out of town, but you do need a car and a spare hour and a half.

Anyone should visit this and be knocked out by the skill and imagination on show. Great fun. Attached to vintage car museum included in the entry price. We’re old enough to reminisce ...”my Mum used to have one of those ...”
