Weta Workshop is an international Awards winning company that deals in special-effects and props. It is responsible for bringing super hit fantasy movies like the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Thor: Ragnarok, King Kong, Warcrafts and District 9 etc to life. Based on the same premise, Weta Cave is the hub of the famous props and studio tours which is a major tourist attraction located 8 kms east of the city centre in Miramar. Considered a must- visit for all the movie buffs, the place hoards all kinds of authentic Weta-designed prop replicas, books, collectibles, jewellery, art prints, apparel and movie memorabilia. The Weta Cave has been divided into two major segments- one is the Mini Museum nestled in the folds of the Cave, which is basically a gallery displaying sculptures of popular characters and miniature props from some of our favourite movies, and second is the screening of behind the scenes documentary that is held every half an hour. In addition to that, the place also conducts regular guided tours of the place.
