* the history museum telling the fascinating story of Ross' past.

The wool exhibition and history museum both feature audio-visual displays and many interesting artefacts. The Feel-and-touch wool display allows visitors to experience wool produced by a range of sheep breeds, and of course features the superfine merino wool the region is renowned for.
