Spent 2 hours here - mainly down to the friendly, knowledgeable staff. With Covid restrictions half of the exhibit areas were closed. But the axminster carpet weaving machine was fascinating

This museum is dedicated to the hostory of wool. It is well laid out over several floors. It also occasionaly has extra exhibits - for example the World Wildlife Photography Exhibit in February 2020. There is a good book and souvenir shop, and information centre with lots of information on Geelong activities. Well worthe a visit.

Interesting museum in one of the former wool factory buildings. Very informative - working jacquard weaving machine operated periodically throughout the day and the operator (a former employee) very knowledgeable about his subject. Various wool-related machines on display, at least one of which is 'hands on'. Informative about the wool industry and its history in Australia.

Incredibly fascinating museum - highlights all the wool history of the area including very good videos and installations - also happened to see the National Photography Exhibition which was excellent. Well worth a visit if in the area.

This wasn't high on my to-do list in Geelong but it turned out to be a really interesting museum with some hands on exhibits - try your hand at grading wool or work the sock knitting machine. The carpet loom is fascinating though I'm still in the dark about how it works. There was also an international wildlife photography exhibition which was amazing. My 10 year old and I spent about 2 hours here. Highly recommend.
