World of WearableArt™ and Classic Cars Museum

Account profile image
Firmly established as an iconic visitor attraction, the World of WearableArt™ and Classic Cars Museum celebrates two distinctly different passions.

The WearableArt™ Gallery features over 50 entries from the annual Brancott Estate of WearableArt™Awards. Marvel at the extraordinary imagination and astonishing capacity of artists from New Zealand and around the world to create truly mind blowing works of art that are wearable.
A 30 minute film of the Brancott Estate World of WearableArt™Awards can be viewed in the Audio Visual theatre.

The Classic Car gallery offers an eclectic mix of immaculately presented vehicles in an imaginative setting, complete with themed sets and theatrical lighting.

For real car enthusiasts there is the Classic Collection, housing nearly 70 cars and is an optional extra to the museum. During weekdays, a full time car restorer can be found working on the latest project.
