Narryna has a rich collection of Tasmanian fine and decorative arts and social history, including portraits, cedar and Huon pine furniture, women’s domestic work and scrimshaw. Narryna’s collection of 19th and early 20th century costume and dress has been identified as nationally significant and has received funding through the National Library of Australia’s Community Grants Program. This page shows some collection highlights including some of our costumes. Check back in future as we will be developing an online exhibition of Narryna’s costume and dress collection along with other collection highlights.
Narryna textiles illustrate care for the home throughout the 19th century.
