About Us

Weather Instruments, Science Toys and Unusual Gifts

The Met Shop has been selling weather instruments and science toys, plus other curiosities, for forty years in differing locations around Wellington City. It has been located in Barker St, Marion St, Aro St, Swan Lane off Cuba St - for 16 years; and Dixon St. These have been wonderful times with thousands of shop visitors from all over the country. The photo here shows the familiar old shop in its prime - a touch of nostalgia to indicate to site visitors that yes, you have come to the right place.

In October 2019 a new family has taken on The Met Shop with an enthusiasm for all things scientific and puzzling, plus some expert young toy-testers!  As long-standing Met Shop fans we are delighted to be able to continue the spirit of the store instilled by former owners Sue and Terry.

The store is currently online only, dealing with our familiar range of weather and science and novelty gifts. 

Please feel free to contact us for any information on products on our site, or that you feel we may be able to source.
