Weta Cave, Wellington Reviews
A places that brings our favorite movie stars and scenes to life! The entry to the museum and shop is free. They also screen a documentary on how they use visual effects in movies. Some of their famous ones are Hobbit, Lord of the rings,king kong, avatar.. They have replicas of the props used in the movies as well as huge models and sculptures. They provide workshop and tour as well. Do visit.
We debated if we should do this or not and we’re so glad we did. It was fantastic and we loved it. So interesting and fun to see how the magic is made. Don’t climb on the trolls out front (unless you want an awesome photo!!)
Worth it to drive here for a visit. It's free to visit. The gift shop is better than the one at Hobbiton. Sells LOTR figurines, t-shirts, etc. Remember to catch the short film on the background of Weta caves. Last 20minutes and very informative. Take photos with the giant figurines. One very friendly staff gave us 2 swords, tell us how to pose and help us snap some memorable shots. So nice of him! Gave an extra star for that!
An absolute must do!! Everyone is super passionate and knowledgeable about all that is Weta! It definitely highlights the drive, creativity and collaboration that goes on behind the scenes.
Cool to see some of the models and sets from the various Weta Digital projects! Access is very good in and around the building. It is also on a main bus route so if you do not have a car it is easy to get there. Entry here is free unless you wish to pay to go on one of the other tours.
