If you want to know how your expensive suit started life, you can find out here. Old, well put together displays of the wool industry. Worth a look if you are in Ross.

They have a nice free museum with lots of info on wool and a lot of touchy-feely exhibits. A nice shop too. Everything from Tasmania too so you know you are getting local stuff.

There is an exhibition about all things wool here. It was worth the visit for that information alone. They also sell various woollen items and having a compared at other places, the prices are cheaper here, which surprised me.

Thoroughly enjoyed learning about Ross' history, especially about Horton Boy's College after seeing the arch way on the way up! The information on the wool industry and having interactive displays so visitors can feel the difference is wonderful too! Thanks Deb for providing us with fantastic information about the area.

This was a good place to get a sense of the village of Ross. It was well done and worth a visit. Shop attached had lovely merchandise.

We actually stopped in Ross for a coffee and came upon this great shop. I did notice that not everything is made in Australia but what was seemed to be of good quality and reasonably priced. I must admit I left quite a few dollars behind for a couple of really beautiful pieces which I will not see each time... More

This tourist attraction pulls together some of the attributes of this area of Tasmania, especially agriculture and history. Great display of the wool industry with the BEST wool in the world and some fascinating local history that impacted on the rest of Australia.

The Tasmanian Wool Centre was a bit disappointing I expected a museum with a lot of historical data on the industry but it was really a shop selling woolen products

I have visited this place several times - the last time being 8 years ago. Nothing has changed. It's looking dreary and old and a coat of the style I bought 8 years ago is still on sale. The place is dark and dusty and needs to get with the times. As another reviewer suggested - it needs to get... More

Visited the wool centre on a recent trip to Tasmania and was very impressed by the informative museum on the history of the wool industry. The shop was excellent with lovely woollen products so my wife now has a beautiful Tasmanian woollen top to wear now we are back in the cold UK. Well worth a visit.
