WOW Mar 19, 2011
The world of wearable art and classic car museum Nelson New Zealand is surprising stunning and a stand out from any other museum I've ever visited. Unfortunately you could not take photos in the wearable art gallery....The wearable art gallery is set out like a fashion show with mannequins suspended above a catwalk they move, turn then move along the catwalk. A few favorite of mine were the hot water bottle bras name hotties... the bike tube ball gown to name a few, it was so fascinating that Mum and I sat through the catwalk parade 3 times. Then you move on to a small theater where you can watch the video of the real wearable art show which is held once a year in Wellington. It was so different to anything we had seen before we were totally enthralled by it all. We didn't have many expectations of the correctable car gallery, but that too was a surprise and very enjoyable. I cannot express enough how enjoyable this place was, you would not be disappointed even if you went out of your way to visit the WOW museum. At the $22.00 admission price it was the best $22.00 I spent all trip. When you go allow at least 2 to 3 hours...AN ABSOULT MUST when in N.Z.

WOW Its the World of Wearable arts, and Classic Cars! Mar 11, 2008
Thr WOW World of Wearable Arts and classic Cars Museum is a place not to be missed while visiting Nelson, there is so much to see there. Loads of wonderful exotic gowns made from the most amazing things; real wearable art. These are creations that have graced the stage of earlier years of the award, some are winners some not, all are fabulous. There is a wearable art Bra section that has to be seen to be beleived! Truely amazing and extremely uncomfortable most of them!

Also the Classic Car collection is excelent there are over 50 different old cars and motor bikes too all in excelent condition and looking good to go.

An Art Gallery is also attached to the display and it features local painters mainly and changed regularily.

There is also a good cafe where you can get quality coffee and lovely food.

We spend a long time here looking at everything.
Erle admiring a wonderful classic …
