A must see!! Incredible display of local talent and a great variety of things to see. The small entry charge is worth it- our 5 and 3 year olds were entertained for ages. An unexpected surprise!

We are local (Hobart) and had never heard of these beautiful works of art/history/craft. The whole museum is delightful. Not too much information, the displays are interesting, thoughtful, amusing. Highly recommended!

This panorama is the culmination of an unbelievable number of hours of work by a whole community. The detail is extraordinary, yet when you stand back and look at the work as a whole it takes on a new pwerspective. Highly recommended.

At the end of our visit to Deloraine, we had some time to spare and sought out the Yarns Artwork in Silk, which is co-located at the Information Centre. It is a magnificent work of art and a great achievement for the people who conceived and executed the work. The 4 beautiful panels, representing each season, depict the history, flora,... More

OK I'm a bloke and not into needlework, tapestry, crafty stuff etc (I initially thought I'd go for a walk rather than subject myself to a boring bit of quilting or something similar) but this work of art is outstanding. And the heritage museum in the same complex is well worth a visit too.

I'm not a very Crafty Person but the Yarns Artwork in Silk on display here is a must to visit. The explanation of these works is a joy to listen to. The restored old miners cottages etc. out the back are also a must to explore. A big thank you to the volunteers who help run this establishment.

Deloraine in the Meander Valley, a rather appropriate name for the area, is a National Trust classified town and rather arty, famous for the Yarns Artwork in Silk exhibition. These are 4 huge silk panels, which have been appliquéd (soft sculpture), using hand and machine embroidery. Each panel shows a season and the attention to detail is phenomenal. Take your... More
