The museum is set out in a former packing shed, which in its heyday gave employment to fifty workers.

The displays will transport you back to these days, showing you 500 different varieties of apples, restored working machines, carpenter's and blacksmith's shops, and kitchen, lounge and other rooms of an era long gone.

When you start with your optional guided tour and see the displays artifacts, and photographs, you will travel back in time a hundred years to when people worked by candlelight and earned aprroximately 5/- (50 cents) per week.

The Region
"In the waterways and wilderness of the Huon Valley and D'Entrecasteaux Channel south of Hobart there's art and heritage; apple blossom and vineyards; farmers, foresters and fishers.

At the fishing village of Kettering, cruising yachts and fishing boats drop anchor in the sheltered harbour and the Bruny Island ferry plies across the channel.

Fruit orchards line the roads to the south. The town of Huonville bustles on the willow-clad banks of the Huon River, which rises far away in the south-west wilderness. The river flows quietly past Franklin, where boat-builders learn traditional skills with timber.

Further south the town of Geeveston shelters in the forest, the fishing towns of Southport and Dover shelter in their bays, and dolomite caves guard their secrets at Hastings and Lune River. The road ends at the tiny settlement of Cockle Creek. Walk a couple of hours to stand on the edge of the world, and gaze out to the vast expanse of the Southern Ocean."
