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.

As a Tasmanian that travels a lot between Hobart and Launceston I rarely get a chance to stop and visit towns along the way. I had the chance to do this today and called into the Tas Wool Centre. 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

Ross is a delightful stop on the road from Launceston to Hobart, actually it is just off the main road. It is beautiful entering the town through an avenue of shady trees. The town has a very wide lawned median strip with wooden seating and stone tables, as well as parking bays. The Wool Centre looked interesting so we paid... More

Spontaneous stop to Ross on the way to Launceston from Hobart. I was a lot more interesting than I had expected. The wool centre is a museum about the History of Ross and the wool industry of Australia. The shop attached to the centre was a bit below average. It was quite pricey, however very good quality. If you enter... More

This was an interesting place to visit and the woollen products on sale were very good quality. There was quite a variety of items from socks to jumpers / dresses / coats. Not cheap but the fine wool was well crafted.

This place also doubles as the information centre for Ross. The is a small history of wool in Tasmania display (no where as large as the centre in Geelong) and an interesting museum about the area which I would have liked more time to read. The centre also had some lovely woollen garments for sale of good quality. Staff very... More
