WOW (World of Wearable Art & Classic Car Museum)

Nelson is well-known for its ingenuity in arts and crafts.

Of course, Nelson is not merely about beach. There are many other great places worth your visits and one of them is the WOW - World of Wearable Art & Classic Cars Museum. The admission to this museum is not free, my friends and I paid $18 each for the visit during one weekend.

Wearable Art Gallery and Classic Car Gallery are the highlights of the museum. Besides, there’re a shop, art gallery and cafĂ© for patrons to visit. No admission fee charged if you merely visit these 3 parts without entering both main galleries.
Sorry that no photos are allowed to be taken from the Wearable Art Gallery, so I have nothing to show. Notwithstanding, I took very many photos from the Classic Car Gallery. There're over 50 classic motorbikes and cars displayed in the museum, it's really a car gallery like no other!

Anyway, I think I have uploaded quite a few photos here. So, even if you don't feel like spend money to visit the museum, at least you still have explored something from here :)

WOW opens every day (except Christmas) from 10am – 5pm.

It's approximately 10 minute drive from Nelson City en-route to Abel Tasman National Park and 2 minutes from Nelson Airport. We went there by one of my friend's car. However, there's public bus service available.
