  • What an amazing place. Close up to famous movie props and seeing how some of them are produced. A great tour.

  • Free to visit. It is an excellent place for lord of the ring fan to see some stuff from the movie. However, the museum zone is exceptionally tiny. You can spend just 10-15 min for looking around.
  • If you are a fan of movies like Avatar, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit etc then the tour is a must for you. If you are curious about movies and special effects then this is very educational & interesting. 90 minutes of gripping info. Book in advance online and avoid the queues.
