This is an excellent Museum - extremely well laid out in a good progression and with a lot of information - in fact there is almost too much information unless you have a good deal of time to spend there. Perhaps a rainy day?

Wow. Automated sheering. This is a must see. Ok....it didn't take off, but $10m for a pair of socks! This is a fun and informative way to spend an hour or so. Well worth a visit.

The staff are cheery, friendly and helpful. The gift store is amazing - full of knitted goods, sauces, chutneys as well as souvenirs and other knick-knacks. The adjoining museum is very interesting!
