Wētā Workshop Experience

Dive head-first into a world of creativity, physical effects and movie magic at Wētā Workshop in Wellington.

Discover how imaginary worlds are brought to life and explore props, costumes and cool stuff,

Wellington, New Zealand, is home to an entire community of creative Wētā Workshop artisans who’ve brought life to such films as The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, King Kong, The Chronicles of Narnia, Avatar and many others. Wētā Workshop is your gateway to filmmaking creativity. Join our guided tours and learn about the making of movie effects, from armour to weapons, creatures to costumes, make-up to miniatures and more!

We also sell a lot of what we make, and in our Wētā Cave, you can purchase all sorts of props, merchandise, collectibles and more. The coolest thing about the items we sell? They are designed and made by the same artists that make the epic stuff you see in the films.
