Weta Studio Tours is your gateway to immersive film making experiences in Wellington, New Zealand.  It’s also the home of our famous Weta Cave retail store: the departure hub for our tours,and a cavern of creativity in its own right!

The Weta Cave is a must-see destination for film buffs and lovers of cool stuff. Here, you can find authentic Weta-designed collectibles, prop replicas, books, jewellery, art prints, apparel and movie memorabilia, all under one roof. Our collectibles and sculptures from the likes of The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Warcraft, Thunderbirds Are Go, and District 9 were created by the same artists who worked on the films.

The Weta Cave is also where you can see our exclusive short documentary about the history of Weta’s creativity. Free to view, the documentary plays every half hour. It’s full of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the founders of the Weta group of companies.

Nestled within the Weta Cave you’ll find our miniature props showcase: a mini museum displaying Weta Workshop artefacts from films we’ve worked on. Free to browse, it’ll give you a taste of the creativity you’ll see on our tours. 

Looking for a fantastical photo to celebrate your visit? While our tour spaces don’t allow photography, the Weta Cave is the perfect selfie spot. Just outside the front door lives the ultimate photo opportunity: our three life-sized trolls! William, Tom and Bert are modelled on the very same designs Weta Workshop created for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
