Unfortunately we picked a really bad time to visit the Weta Cave. I'm sure under different circumstances it might have been better. However we went just after Christmas, on a rainy day, when not much else was open. And it was horrendously packed, to the point you could barely get in the door. With so many people you could barely move, let alone get to the glass cabinets to see anything. There was only one staff member on the desk. If you wanted to stay and watch the documentary you had to wait inside the display area, which only added to the already over crowded area. The museum area was also quite disappointing and really small! To make things worse for us we also had a small pushchair and people just kept trying to push it away or even walk over it!
All in all a very poor experience. You would think that with the size of the building that they have, that they could have opened up the front area a little more, to make a more enjoyable viewing area for visitors. Even free it wasn't worth the drive out.
