Narryna is a fine 1830s merchant's town house that evokes the business and maritime histories of Salamanca Place and Battery Point. The house was built by Captain Andrew Haig in 1837-40 on land he purchased in 1824 during a trading voyage between Calcutta, Canton and Valparaiso. Haig built warehouses facing Salamanca Place in 1834 and set up as a merchant and shipbuilder while also operating goods and passenger services to mainland ports. He was forced to sell up in 1842, during Australia's first economic depression .

Narryna was later home to businessmen and women, lawyers, politicians and bankers. In 1957 a group of Hobart and Battery Point residents opened Narryna as a museum with a rich collection of Tasmanian fine, decorative arts and costume.
