Pre-arrange a meeting time with your guide during the workshop’s normal hours of operation, and then head to the Weta Workshop Cave at your appointed hour.
Your guide, who is also a Weta Workshop technician, will show you the ins and outs of this marvelous facility. Check out the handcrafted weapons and sculptures displayed in the Weta boardroom, and admire the wealth of awards the company has racked up, including five Oscars® collected by Weta’s Richard Taylor and his team.
As you proceed, you’ll get a glimpse of workshop sections normally off-limits to the public and get an insider’s look at how movie props and costumes are created from scratch.
When you finish the guided portion of the tour, feel free to stay a while longer to wander through the exhibitions in the Weta Cave or to pick up a few souvenirs.
