Help recognise the 150-year anniversary of the Dennys Lascelles Woolstore, the home of the National Wool Museum, by visiting the interactive Bluestone exhibition.

Learn about the history of Geelong through storytelling by those who walked these halls and streets before us, then engage in some fun craft activities and even a game of basketball!

Bluestone: 150 Years of the Dennys Lascelles Woolstore opens on Friday 16 September. Tickets are available at the door and include access to all gallery spaces.

Also, don’t miss the multi award-winning gallery On the Land: Our Story Retold, which tells the story of people and places and our impact on the land. Suitable for the entire family, the exhibition is contemporary and interactive, encouraging curiosity about Geelong, environment, farming, the region’s traditional owners and sheep!

The museum’s youngest visitors can also experience the collection and exhibitions through the regular Museum Explorer series. Be immersed in the museum experience by taking part in a Mini Maker workshop, enjoy interactive story telling or take part in a sensory play day.

The National Wool Museum is open daily from 10am to 3pm, and is located at 26 Moorabool Street, Geelong.
