We were rained out in the blue mountains and looking for something to keep two children distracted for an hour or so. This was a real find. The owners were really friendly and easy going. Our daughter (3) loved looking at all the old toys and our son (1) was free to crawl about (I just made sure to grab... More

Stopped after seeing the signs. Huge collection of trains, dolls, ships and other toys housed both in the house and outbuildings in the garden around the house. Lots of interesting items if you are knowledgeable on trains especially or toys in general. Not that well displayed and many modern items posing as old. Also seems a bit neglected especially the...

We were disappointed in our visit to Leuralla. Although the toy exhibition is vast there was no real information or history and it felt like the displays were all jumbled up. The gardens were lovely but there was no cafe or opportunity to buy a drink. It felt poor value for money.

We had an older Coach group, who looked over this museum, and found a lot of interesting things in it of their (and my) day. Probably the kids of today may not even know half of the stuff. The Museum is set in an historic mansion built for Dr Evatt and Family, it is lovely and worth the visit, it... More

What can you say the whole venue is a museum - and we were lucky enough to be there when all the trees and plants were in full bloom. What a fantastic family home this would have been. There is lots of info on the history of the house and its occupants that was most interesting with photographs to go... More

The Museum is like all, the building and the garden are both well kept with some interesting shrubs and trees. The miniature Railway collection is good, but did not see many Aussie locomotive models in it. the signs and railway memorabilia is based on N.S.W.

I guess it depends on the kids though. Lots of glass cabinets with little room between it. Not sure how many of the characters they would know either. My friends & I had lots of fun walking wounded looking at them. The model train was fun to look at also.

I took one of my grand daughters to this museum. She enjoyed it but I think I enjoyed it even more because it brought back memories of my childhood - particularly the train sets and the meccano items The museum is in an elegant mansion that is apparently owned by the Evatt family. It is set on a large block... More

The Leuralla Gardens are located opposite the Toy and Miniature Railway Museum. Why bother entering as the view can be seen via the alley way to the left of the garden (lawn with not much else) and take you right down to a lookout.

We looked forward to visiting Leuralla as our 2 year old loves anything train related. We were also keen to view the house and gardens. The house is beautiful however the museum (inside the house) is not suitable for young children as everything is locked in cabinets and not engaging for the littlies at all. The rooms are cordoned off... More
