This is no ordinary museum! Experience “A Quick Peep at the Past”; tour takes about 10-15 minutes. Discover what life was like for poor free settlers and convicts in Tasmania. In the 1830’s cottage, the only remaining dwelling in Richmond without electricity or water, experience a little taste of legendary Grannie Rhodes’ extraordinary life. View the Bark Hut and see Bernie Tarr’s wonderful sculpture.
Tour is free to Mulberry Cottage B&B guests. The book “Turning the Key of Time at Grannie Rhodes'” and the DVD of the show is for sale at a discount from Mulberry Cottage B&B and various shops in Richmond village. Two visitors showing proof of purchase get free entry to the cottage museum.
The show, “Turn the Key of Time” will only be available for special bookings, as after 11 years of very successful awarded performances in Grannie Rhodes’ 1830’s Cottage Richmond, Miriam Cooper, alias “Grannie”, has retired from performing that show.
Richmond is around a 25-minute drive (26 kilometres/16 miles) north-east of Hobart.
Miriam’s story-telling will continue in her “Tales from Tasmania”, dark and light but strange stories from Tasmania’s history. Grannie Rhodes’ story will be available for gigs and special request performances.
