The Wool House is a medieval building in Southampton, Hampshire, England which was built to serve the wool trade. It has since had various uses.
The Wool House was built in the late 14th century to store wool for export to Italy.
In the early 19th century it was used as a prison for Napoleonic French prisoners of war. The building was restored by Southampton City Corporation and adapted to house the Southampton Maritime Museum, which opened in June 1966 and moved to SeaCity Museum in January 2012. It is a Grade I listed building.A plaque on the wall of The Wool House records its history:
