More interesting than it may sound, this museum showcases the importance of the wool industry 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.
