National Wool Museum


National Wool Museum

Visit the National Wool Museum in Geelong to be transported back in time - the Museum will educate and delight you with the sights, sounds and personalities of the wool heritage of this area.

The National Wool Museum has a range of all-inclusive packages to ensure you have a unique Australian experience and a great day out.

At the National Wool Museum, you will discover why fleece from Australia's sheep has been the heart of our economy for 200 years.

Since the arrival of sheep with the First Fleet in 1788, the wool industry has dominated our economy, our agriculture and our reputation as a quality wool-growing nation throughout the world.

Geelong is a city synonymous with wool and the wool industry – sheep farming began here in 1835 and the first of many woollen mills opened here in 1868. For many years the city was known as the 'wool centre of the world'.

Two hundred years later, in 1988, the National Wool Museum was established as Australia’s only comprehensive museum of wool.

Museum: Monday to Friday 9:30am to 5:00pm, Saturday to Sunday 10:00am to 5:00pm
Shop: Daily 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Closed: Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Good Friday
