Markree House Museum and Garden

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Markree House Museum and Garden is a hidden gem located in inner-city Hobart. The house, interiors and garden all reflect the influence of the British Arts and Crafts Movement. Markree was designed in 1925 by architect Bernard Ridley Walker for Cecil and Ruth Baldwin. The house contains its original 1910s-20s furnishings together with older portraits and family heirlooms from Ruth Baldwin’s family. Markree’s rare 1920s garden was laid out by Cecil Baldwin in an informal Arts and Crafts Movement style.
Cecil and Ruth Baldwin’s son, Henry (1919-2007), bequeathed the house to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Markree specialises in the social history and design of the early 20th century.
