The World of WearableArt and Classic Cars Museum is an iconic ‘must see’ visitor attraction in Nelson, New Zealand. Open 364 days of the year, the Museum offers international and national visitors a creative and visual experience that is beyond their expectations.

Step into the fantasy World of WearableArt Gallery where “art is taken off the walls to adorn the body in wildly wonderful ways”. The magical atmosphere of the annual, internationally renowned World of WearableArt Awards Show (WOW) is translated into a breathtaking gallery experience using music, lighting and theatrical effects.

The Classic Car Gallery features an eclectic mix of well presented examples of some of the best in automotive history; this is a car gallery like no other.
Both galleries are a testament to the dedication, passion and obsession that grips both designers and restorers alike in the pursuit of their “art”.

We recommend 60-90 mins to view galleries.
Museum also includes a Café, Museum Shop and Reflections Art Gallery.
