The Folk Museum was opened as the Family & Commercial Inn in 1863. Today it reflects the life of the country publican and his family. Also housed in extensive gardens is the Pioneer Walk, where you can view reproduction and reclaimed heritage buildings showcasing the lives, tools and farming equipment of early settlers.

Combined with the Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre and co-located with the Yarns of Art Silk exhibition, this is a great stopover. Its pride place in the community is obvious by the donations of indoor and outdoor historical items that tell the history of the...More

Great place to see the Silk Panels, show cost AUD6.00 to enter, this also includes admission to Folk Museum also. Great place to see how they lived and worked in the olden days. Well worth a visit.

If you find yourself in the area, this museum is a must. Small but clean and well signposted covering inside and outside living conditions of yesteryear. The embroidered yarn showing is the cherry on the top. Highly recommended.

This museum is better than the average small town museum. It is located as part of the town's tourist information building. There are a number of recreated early settler buildings outside and inside an old inn has been refurbished. The museum entry includes entry to...More

This is a real gem in Deloraine and well worth spending an hour or two. Beautifully laid out gardens and memorabilia of colonial days with lots of community involvement evident. Yarns Artwork in Silk at the same location is also amazing. Make time to visit...More
