National Wool Museum - Review
The wool industry was in import part of Geelong history and its influences can be seen to this day in the culture and architecture of the place. The museum showcases the role, played by the wool-industry, in shaping Geelong. There is a sock weaving machine as well as a large 1910 Axminster carpet loom that still runs on weekends. He museum itself is housed in a former wool-store, 1872 bluestone building. There is also a gift shop on the premises.

National Wool Museum, Geelong Reviews
Kids love the cottage and house they can play in and my 3 year old kept yelling 'This from sheep??' so he definitely learnt something. Staff are lovely and helpful.
I really enjoyed this experience! The museum displays pretty much everything to do with how different types of fleece are selected and turned into textiles. So much history, I never realized how big the industry in Victoria was back then. I learned a lot, definitely a must see if you have interest in this sort of thing.
National wool museum is a beautiful heritage with a history of cotton production machinery still living and functional in its original state. Visit the museum located in Moorabool street Geelong C.B.D. There is a store showcase of cotton and wool products such as scarfs and rags. They also sell mugs in the mix. Go and meet with friendly international tourists and experience the best customer service in store.
This was very educational,a look back from the past There's a gorgeous little shop that you can buy fabulous pure wool clothing
Great little museum, that takes you back to the era of sheep and wool. Enjoyed the interactive elements, good hands on museum, would be a treat for kids. Only disappointment was that there wasn't a dedicated wool supply shop attached, seems like a missed opportunity.
