Attention film fans, pop culture connoisseurs, families and anyone who just loves to make cool stuff! Weta Workshop is your gateway to immersive filmmaking experiences on the Miramar Peninsula. Get up close to the incredible miniatures, props, weapons, armour, creatures, vehicles, models and more, all made right here in Wellington. Join the Weta Workshop crew on a journey from Middle-earth to Tracy Island and beyond, and learn how the clever Weta Workshop crew make imaginary worlds a reality.

Visit our famous Weta Cave shop, a cavern of creativity where you can shop for collectibles, prop replicas, apparel, jewellery, DVDs, art prints and more. Pick yourself up a rad ray gun, a signed book, or perhaps even a premium sculpture made by the filmmakers at Weta Workshop. While you’re there, wander through the mini museum and take a seat for a short documentary about the history of movie-making on the Miramar Peninsula. It’s free and screens throughout the day.

Tours operate every 30 minutes from 9am to 5pm, 7 days. Closed Christmas Day.
