We took a diversion off the main highway into Ross and were not disappointed. So much to see. This museum and shop was really interesting with a good combination of retail products and historical displays.

Nice display of woolen items, plus loads of history, touch and feel displays (mainly of greasy, lanolin covered wool fibre samples). It is worth a stop off on the way through, for sure!

It was a quick visit. Most items for sale were very expensive and overpriced. Still good to visit while doing the town.

Lots to look at for free not only about wool, but Tasmanian history. Shop is very pricey, but I am unsure maybe that is standard price.

Superb range of wool clothes and other related bits. The small wool and local history museum was a delight. Worth the small diversion off the highway.
