Someone has gone to a bit of trouble with the display which was worth a look. However, I found the attitude of the women who work in the shop appauling, sadly they let the whole thing down and the township of Ross in general. They were unhelpful, abrupt and more interested in their own agenda. Should you make a purchase... More

It didn't really interest me and the prices for items were better suited for big cities. However the people knew what they were talking about so that was a bonus.

Most product are made in China. Bought one item made in Australia. The lady shop keeper may be friendlier. Tasmania seems to behind in Hospitality Industry.

Interesting showing Australia's growth on the sheeps back and the importance of Tasmania in this. Take time to watch the videos relating to the story of wool.

This is a wool museum but also a Ross history museum. The facility is small but most informative. Feel various grades of wool and see how it is sheared. If you get to talk to the manager she is an added benefit.

We often pop in to check out what is happening at the Wool Centre - and I left having purchased a pair of possum gloves, and one of my daughter in laws also bought some gloves and a pair of thick leggings/socks. Nice range of woolen products and the museum section is also interesting.

Shame I had to I interrupt a staff member from whatever she was doing at the desk to ask for assistance... More

Very informative display and overview of Tasmanian wool/sheep industry - some interactive displays to touch the wool samples, etc. Quite a lot of local Tasmanian history which was to be expected - good place to go to find out more about the town of Ross and its' history. Some beautiful products in the shop - seemed expensive but very nice/good... More
