Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Deloraine and District Folk Museum was opened as the Family and Commercial Inn in 1864. Today it reflects the life of the country publican and his family. Housed in the extensive garden is a Pioneer Walk where you can view reproduction and reclaimed heritage buildings showcasing the lives, tools and farming equipment of early settlers. A new exhibition about chair maker, Jimmy Possum, is now open. Who was Jimmy Possum? Come along and learn about this Deloraine mystery.
The museum is located at the Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre, 98-100 Emu Bay Road, Deloraine.
