The Folk Museum was opened as the Family & Commercial Inn in 1863. Today it reflects the life of the country publican and his family. Also housed in extensive gardens is the Pioneer Walk, where you can view reproduction and reclaimed heritage buildings showcasing the lives, tools and farming equipment of early settlers.

A very interesting museum (you must see "The Yarns - fabulous!) in the beautiful town of Deloraine. There are many artifacts illustrating the history of the area - all well presented in the main building and the grounds.

The museum had a lot of interesting vintage items and we were able to wonder around the rooms and yard at our own place looking at large and small items.
