No bookings required, just turn up!

Architect: Edward Winch (1830s)

Narryna is an 1830s merchant’s house and collection of historical items that tells the story of early colonial life in Hobart. The fine Georgian town house was built by seafarer Captain Andrew Haig who also built warehouses facing Salamanca Place in 1834. Narryna has had an adventurous life as a home to large families, a boarding house, hospital and now a museum.

Step into Narryna for a rich experience of Tasmania’s social history, art and design traditions.
