The Deloraine & Districts Folk Museum

Deloraine and Districts Folk Museum

The Deloraine & Districts Folk Museum provides a fascinating insight into our region’s pioneering past. The museum encompasses the Family & Commercial Inn built in 1863 with the Inn set up as it may have been when the publican lived in it. A Pioneer village consisting of reclaimed and reproduction heritage buildings showcases the lives and farming equipment of early settlers while set in fragrant gardens of English flowers and native trees.

The Deloraine & Districts Folk Museum is included in the entry ticket and is a self guided tour.
