An exceptional place to visit tucked away up a side street in Ross - not a place you'd chance upon; you would have to be looking for it.

The museum is so well done, the displays clearly explain the history of the town and provide personal insights into town life. The clothing is excellent - I bought a number of items and I am so happy with the quality of the garments. I recommend if you plan on buying wool items in Tassie this is a must see.

We stopped by on our way back to Hobart. The displays about wool are interesting, and you get the opportunity to touch the various types and grades of fleece which is something different. The shop at the front is quite large, and stocks all sorts of woolen products from socks, scarves and other clothing to raw fibre and yarn and... More

Well laid out and thoughtful display of the local history of the woollen industry. Good quality produce is also on display, most available for purchase. It is an interesting place to visit, even for a short time.

Great choice of brand name products plus those made by local artisans. Love the range of goods available plus the informative staff who blend into the background unless asked to help. Happy to make the trip from Hobart knowing that I am buying Australian products.

My husband and I always enjoy popping into the Tasmanian Wool Centre. We love to have a look at all the wool clothing and have bought great jackets here. The displays are informative and staff helpful. Well worth a visit 'wool lovers'.

Friendly staff as us part of the information centre, watched exactly how the wool shearing is done to get the best results....pretty cool...and I've watched sheep being shorn before. Shows grades of merino wool from many many years ago. Some great stuff on sale too. If you come in winter like we have (June) you will need some really warm... More

The Wool Centre contains an interesting display of the history of the woollen industry in the local area. Quality produce is also on display, with much to purchase. Whilst a visit here will not take too long, it is an interesting place to walk through, and is another centre that emphasises Ross's historical significance.
