Reviewed September 24, 2012

Interesting collections but stand-offish staff and no good for repeat visits (the collections are all quite similar throughout the years.) But if you are a visitor to Nelson I would recommend it.

“Inspirational”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

A totally inspiring visit for two crafty people who have experienced the WOW show in Wellington. The ability to see creations up close made the experience of the show all the more intriguing. Classic cars were a delight for husband in tow.

“World class exibition”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Took our Swiss visitors to WOW, they were astonished that Nelson could produce such a sophisticated show. Amazing creations, each different from the other. Loved the bizarre bra section.

“A must see for all ages.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

I had heard about the WOW show in Wellington and was disappointed that I would be leaving New Zealand before the show started so I was pleased, when quite by accident, I stumbled upon the WOW & Classic Cars Museum on my way into Nelson. It was amazing. The costumes were displayed on models on a moving conveyor belt with a description of each one -fascinating. There was also an AV display showing the costumes in the WOW show. I could have stayed a lot longer but had arrived at 3 pm and it closed at 5. I had a quick look around the Classic Cars exhibition but the WOW display was a show-stealer. Please bring the show & display to the UK.
