I love Lord of the Rings and I love the Weta crew a lot after watching so much about them in the LOTR special edition bonus footage. There are hours of interesting information about the Weta Workshop and workers and products on there, and to be honest you are better off buying the special edition LOTR movies, or renting these dvd's if you want to learn about Weta and see them in action. The cave in Miramar is pretty cool but after you watch the 20 min movie they have and walk in the two rooms of displays/gift shop, you have seen everything. There is certainly some cool props, weapons, costumes, and other things from some of their major recent films, but otherwise there is not much else. I was expecting there not to be a ton, but I thought there might be at least twice as much as there ended up being. The LOTR dvd info shows you way more then you see at the cave, so personally if you want to see Weta in action, or learn about them then see the dvd's. If you are in Miramar and want to just pop by then by all means there are some cool things there and some cool souvenirs for sale. I just can't really say though that it was worth the $10, 25 min each way bus ride.
