Well worth the visit - just beautiful! Knowledgeable staff at the front counter can also tell visitors more about the town and places to visit. The gift shop is well stocked with Tasmanian souvenirs and a great selection of books.

We loved seeing the wonderful tapestries here - with the detail, the imaginative construction and the superb workmanship. The theatre setting with the sound and light display was great. We also enjoyed the museum, but as it is not easily accessible for those with mobility problems, we did not see all of it.

Impressive needlework, both for skills involved and history behind it. Museum well looked after, interesting, and friendly and helpful staff.

You will be amazed by the sight of this quilt. We visited as part of the Tasmanian Craft Fair. The quilt is well presented in its own gallery. You can enjoy taking in all the details, this is best done with a guide.

Im generally not a quilt type person. At the Deloraine craft fair we thought wed take a look anyway. I was astounded. The quilt took three hundred women three years to complete and it is gorgeous. It depicts the town and it is absolutely beautifully crafted. Thanks girls.

Beautiful textile panels using many kinds of textile art. A true labor of love. Not well advertised or promoted so it is easy to miss this artistic delight.

A stunning display in the Information Centre. $8 entry or $6 concession. There are four large panels about 4 metres by 5 metres depicting four seasons and the history, geography and lifestyle of Deloraine and the Meander Valley in 3D embroidery, quilting, hand painted silk and other aspects of textiles. An audio presentation explains each panel. Tours start every 30... More
