More interesting than it may sound, this museum showcases the importance that the wool industry had in shaping Geelong economically, socially and architecturally; many of the grand buildings in the area are former wool-store buildings, including the museum's 1872 bluestone building. There’s a sock-making machine and a massive 1910 Axminster carpet loom that gets chugging on weekends.
