Owner description: Narryna House & Garden offers a delightful retreat from the modern world. Step back into a 19th century, enjoy the old fashioned charm and take in the lovely spring garden. Why not bring a picnic? Australia's first folk museum (opened 1957) offers an array of collections including Huon pine furniture, portraits, domestic tools and equipment and costumes, Markree is one hundred years on (Arts & Craft movement)and only 200 metres down the road!! Check both houses out for $16!! What a bargain.

Too bad - at 4.30 the fountain was off and the gates closed literally in our faces. I barely managed to take a photo- if was clear we were not welcome.... Sign clearly stated closing time as 5pm....
Not very tourist friendly.

Even though some rooms were in the midst of a restoration while we were there, it was delightful to see this slice of Hobart's colonial past. Some lovely, quite old embroidered samplers, plus a quilt from the early 1800s worth seeing.

This house was situated in a lovely part of Hobart, Battery Point with cafes all around. The house itself was interesting, would have loved an actual tour with a guide though to really glean all about the history.

The Narryna Heritage Museum was the best historic house museum we've seen in quite a while. With a minimal entrance fee, the volunteer at the home was able to offer good information about the home, its history, and former owners. Narryna is furnished with beautiful period furniture and art pieces, and includes machinery like old clothes washers that will make you appreciative of technology now that helps with the household chores. Overall the home was a great experience and close to the Salamanca Market, making it convenient and a worthwhile stop while in Hobart.
