The Centre consists of:

* the retail area offering fine wool products

* a wool exhibition area outlining the history of the wool industry in Tasmania, and

* 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.
