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.

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.

Found the museum quite interesting, especially the displays of different quality wools & the amazing range of trophies on display. Shop carries high quality woollen products but as a Qlder not sure of value for money, definitely nice quality. Would like to see the lovely skeins of wool available with patterns for small projects. Would definitely have been more likely... More

This is a boutique shop front with a museum at the back to act as magnet. A great idea that did not quite work for me. The displays were presented reasonably well but were not enticing enough to become engaged in a wholly interesting story of history and prosperity. Ross has huge charm and the wool centre could have set... More

They have an excellent display of different wools and products, some for sale. There are two films on wool processing, including sheering. The museum covers the history of wool in the area plus local Tasmanian history. I had to drag Pat out of there to continue onto Hobart.

If in Ross it is worth looking in at the Wool Centre. It is certainly there to sell local merino wool products. But there is also an apartment interesting and well displayed story of the industry in Tasmania. The story of merino wool is well set out and for such a small place, those in Ross who set up this...
