Weta Cave, Wellington Reviews

  • Big clap to the production team in making this incredible things happen. I bought a tour which took 45 minutes. Our guide Isaac told us many interesting stories about how to become the world leading character creator and filmaker. I can take a closer look at the stuff and touch some of them. Amazing experience! Buy some souvenirs and take a picture with the two giants in front of the gate.

  • I love some Weta films and was very excited to do the workshop tour. You don't actually see the workshop, just a guided tour of a museum within the workshop showing stuff they've made and the process of making them. It's good, but not what I expected. They do make amazing stuff but it's not really a workshop tour.

  • 10 year anniversary of Weta Cave today. So happy to work / be a part of the the Weta family at Pukeko Pictures working with for this extremely talented couple. Tania and Richard Taylor. If you ever wondered how did they do that and how did they build that. For those who have never walked on set or worked in the industry this is a great little tour to take the family / friends when visiting Wellington New Zealand. Great props and back ground information for all those Lord of the Rings fans along with models from other movies that Weta Workshop have done amazing work on. Check out their Gallipoli exhibition Te Papa Museum Wellington, it is mind blowing work.

  • The workshop tour is amazing i which you can touch some of the props and talk to the artists. Thank you for the lovely guide Sammy. We have a great afternoon. Don’t forget to explore the theater, lovely story of Weta

  • A stunning trip for a cinephile like me. Highly recommend a combo tour to get close to every aspect of making a great movie. Definitely a “must-do” in Welly. And thank you, Weta studio and all the studios, production companies, for bringing us so many memorable movies!
