Owner description: Toowoomba's must-see tourist destination! Part of the Queensland Museum Network and home to the National Carriage Collection, discover a variety of interactive displays, exhibits and heritage trade workshops. Immerse yourself in Toowoomba's natural and cultural history and revisit an Australian transport era.

Put your power to the test in the Energy for Life Discovery Centre and explore how your body uses and stores energy and how we can use energy more sustainably.

Get your hands on history with a variety of heritage workshops with one to five day workshops suited from beginner to expert. Experience the satisfaction of learning a traditional skill and creating something beautiful yet functional by hand. Take a break in Cobb's Coffee Shop and try Toowoomba's best scones!

We have visited quite a few museums and have to say we were disappointed. Not sure what we were expecting but we didn't find ourselves walking away delighted with the visit. One good thing about the building was the childrens play area in the cafe.

A visit to Cobb+Co Museum is well worth it. It is great value for money as there is so much to see & watch - it takes you back in time. Very well done.

I visited during the Carnival of Flowers and really enjoyed the hanging pots display. Also the guided tour was very informative, learning things that I'd not known about coaches and the early history of coach travel in Australia.
