The small entry fee also allows entrance into the folk museum which was well... More

I wasn't especially keen to see this display but it came with the ticket to the museum. The show involves sitting in an auditorium as a light show highlights each of the tapestries that depict Deloraine through the seasons. The show at about 20 minutes was just the right length of time and showcased the amazing handiwork done on these... More

A must see!! Incredible display of local talent and a great variety of things to see. The small entry charge is worth it- our 5 and 3 year olds were entertained for ages. An unexpected surprise!

We are local (Hobart) and had never heard of these beautiful works of art/history/craft. The whole museum is delightful. Not too much information, the displays are interesting, thoughtful, amusing. Highly recommended!

This panorama is the culmination of an unbelievable number of hours of work by a whole community. The detail is extraordinary, yet when you stand back and look at the work as a whole it takes on a new pwerspective. Highly recommended.

It is a magnificent work of art and a great achievement for the people who conceived and executed the work. The 4 beautiful panels, representing each season, depict the history, flora,... More
