Narryna Heritage Museum – 1

What a great time we had yesterday! After a delicious lunch, I visited this beautiful historic home with friends Barb and Lauree. Our main purpose was to see the Tasmanian Art Quilt Prize exhibition but (as always) I could not resist the history and elegance of this place.

Situated at Battery Point in Hobart, it is within easy walking distance of Salamanca and the waterfront.

This short slideshow is the first of several, and features the exterior and outbuildings. 

I’m so excited!
