What a different experience! The wearable art is really wild. Cleverly made and very original. A must see. Car collection equally good. A real mixture from USA, Europe and beyond with a wide spread of ages and styles. A fun collection with no particular theme...More

We had heard about this but very unsure about liking it. Couldn't have been more off the mark. The "clothes" are absolutely amazing. Nothing you could imagine in your wildest dreams/nightmares. Well worth the time. The bonus of the car collection was the finishing touch....More

Took friends from out of town. There was something for the boys and the girls. It was nice just to stroll around and admire the "art".
