The National Wool Museum is housed in a historic blue-stone building.

Opened in 1988, the Museum chronicles the history of Australia’s wool industry from it’s beginnings in the Geelong region from the 1830’s and regularly houses other temporary exhibitions.

The Museum is fully accessible at street entry and there are ramps to every level. Accessible parking is located immediately in front of the Museum. Accessible toilets are located on each level.

The National Wool Museum Reminiscence Cottage has been designed as a sensory experience reflecting Australian home life from 1930-1950 for people with dementia and their families.

Reminiscence through the senses. For people with difficulties communicating, reminiscence helps them to communicate in different ways, and engages their senses to help release stored memories by using items which may be familiar.
