National Wool Museum, Geelong Reviews - Write a Review
Great experience. Take a walk back in time. Enjoy changing exhibitions. Chatty knowledgeable staff.
Always a great place to visit with many interesting displays and helpful volunteer staff to assist and provide information.
This museum is well worth visiting. The history of the wool industry in Geelong is well covered. My grandmother worked here in the 1930's as a wool sorter
Not only is this place boring but it's a pretty BAAAAAAAAd museum
Great reminder of what kept this country viable. Friendly, knowledgeable staff willing to take time.
