Having seen this years show in Wellington, this exhibition was very much a repeat performance at $24 each. If I have not been to the show, the costumes are well worth a look. Would have been nice to see some costumes from previous years though. All in all, I would say it was overpriced for a fairly small collection, but awesome costumes. If you are a fan of classic cars as well then it is probably well worth a visit!

Great! So interesting, so stimulating for creativity. And not too long, so you remember clearly all that you have seen. Too expensive, $24 for not even an hour long visit is too expensive.

A lot of nice cars. Good to visit additional room with car exposition as clothes was not that interesting for me.

Small volume of costume on display at time of my visit, 2013 show items on display. Guess changing display keeps it interesting for return visitors.

Fun and rare museum with old classic cars and weird costumes! Great for both men and woman. Only minus - not allowed to take pictures of costumes.

A fascinating place with weird and wonderful clothes but mainly classic cars of high quality and excellently restored.
