Aratoi - Wairarapa Museum of Art & History

Lindauer portrait

Based in Masterton, Aratoi tells the stories of Wairarapa’s people and its past - and houses the region's most important cultural material. 

The collection includes work by some of New Zealand's best-loved artists, including Colin McCahon, Rita Angus, and John Drawbridge. Wander through the ever-changing exhibitions - there's always something new, from touring national shows to works by local painters, sculptors and photographers. End your visit with a coffee at Entice Cafe.

The Masterton i-SITE Visitor Centre is just next door, and beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park is over the road.
