Deloraine Folk Museum
The Deloraine Folk Museum dates from 1856 and is located at Deloraine in Tasmania’s north.
The cottage was originally built for the Johnstone family. The building was extended and opened as the Family and Commercial Inn between 1863 and 1894. During most of the twentieth century it was used for accommodation and offices. In 1972, Mrs Alma Bramich donated the building and land to the community to house the Deloraine Folk Museum.
The museum now reflects the life of a country publican and his family. The tour takes you through the cottage, pub, Jimmy Possum snug and exhibition gallery. You will then move out into the Alma Bramich garden, dairy, blacksmith’s shop and vehicle shed. The museum is located at the Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre, 98-100 Emu Bay Road, Deloraine. It is open from 9am to 5pm daily.
Deloraine is approximately 45-minutes’ drive west from Launceston (53 kilometres/33 miles).
