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.

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

Visiting here was not quite what we were expecting really. The essence basically is on toys of old and new, along with the classics. The house which still has half in use by the owners, is great to see from a bygone era. We thought given the entrance fee of $15 with no concessions for seniors was quite steep really... More

I've seen the signs advertising this place many times as i crossed the Blue Mountains and had it on my bucket list. Yesterday I went there, and found it fascinating. The old house is worth a visit in itself. The entry fee was $15, not unreasonable. The collection of toys was brilliant, lots of them very old and reminded me... More
