A great place to visit, see the history of Transport from the days of Cobb & Co, various horse drawn vehicles and even an early horseless carriage. Interactive and informative displays. Also other displays, including interactive Science Room and Travelling Exhibits. Much more than I can mention. My two grandsons - aged eight and five - never tire of the... More

We visit every time they have a new exhibit or when the school holidays show various themed activity sessions for the kids. Terrific coffee shop with a good and fresh selection of tasty snacks and full meals.

What a great place to visit. My 3yr old Grandson loves coming here. All the hands on experiences for him to play with while learning along the way. So much to do. I'm sure he would spend all day here if he could. The cafe is also a great place to have a cuppa or lunch after all the excitement... More

Nestled opposite the Botanical Gardens, the Cobb & Co museum was a pleasant surprise. So much history and a good layout to get around at ones own pace and see everything without feeling you are in peoples way, or holding them up. We did not stop for coffee, but the cafe seemed to be well patronised with locals and visitors... More

very interesting place to visit. They have a large collection of well preserved Cobb and Co carriages. They also have an aboriginal.section, a blacksmith section and we watched handson workshop on making wagon wheels. Everything is set out well, explained well and very interesting even for children.

We visited this museum during the school holidays with our children while visiting family and the staff were very friendly and helpful and the activities kept the little ones entertained inside on a very hot Toowoomba day.
