You can also visit the Federation Heritage Museum, which celebrates the Tasman Peninsula’s convict history, saw milling and blacksmithing industries in a display of historic artefacts, photographs and memorabilia. The Museum itself has a number of historic features, including convict-cut sandstone, timber columns and beams salvaged from a colonial-era wharf and an elegant front door—restored with leadlight by a local artist—salvaged from a Federation house in Huonville.
