Learning at the National Wool Museum

The National Wool Museum is a place where curiosity is sparked and senses are engaged.

Through our learning experiences students can:

  • explore wool, fibre, textiles, industry and agriculture, from past to present
  • discover unique and fascinating exhibits, objects and machines
  • see the 1910 Axminster Jacquard carpet loom, the grand centrepiece of the museum, in action
  • connect with the stories and perspectives of people and places of the region
  • make and create with wool, fibre and textiles.

School programs

Our museum educator-led tours and workshops are available for all our wool-centred permanent exhibitions and exciting range of temporary exhibitions.

All facilitated programs are led by experienced museum educators and align with the Victorian Curriculum.

Important notice

The National Wool Museum is committed to the health and safety of its visitors and staff members.

School group bookings are welcome and availability subject to health guidelines and restriction levels at the time of visitation.

In line with Victorian state government COVID- 19 health and safety advice we have made some adjustments to our tours, workshops and scheduling of groups. These include single school bookings per day, reducing our group sizes to 20 in line with venue density quotas, regular cleaning and sanitising times allocated between groups, and scheduling and spacing of groups to avoid congregation of visitors in spaces.
