The Masterton Arts Quarter includes several creative organisations, creating an arts hub at the northern end of Masterton.
Aratoi - Wairarapa Museum of Art & History - is Wairarapa’s largest public museum with regional, national, and international exhibitions, educational activities, performances, and has a public collection of more than 4,000 Māori taonga, historical items, and art.
ConArt Gallery & Studios is a creative and retail space where Wairarapa-based artists create, exhibit, promote and sell artwork. The purpose built containers include a gallery, working studios, and sculpture garden.
King Street Artworks is a free community workshop supporting the mental health and wellbeing of the community.
Te Pā (Te Pātukituki o Wairarapa) promotes and invigorates Toi Māori as a local practice. The gallery workshop connects through pūrakau-stories and provides educational one-on-one mentoring and group workshops/courses. Local experts specialise in Rongoā, Kōwhaiwhai, Raranga and Whakaiiro.
