In addition to seeing a n interesting display of coaches, the Museum has a Da Vinci Exhibition which included copies of his most famous paintings, copies of his sketches of his inventions & models - a fascinating display & definitely worth the visit.

I think if you are in Toowoomba it is worthwhile to go to the Cobb and Co Museum. At the moment along with the wagons and coaches they have a Leonardo da Vinci exhibition which is simply great.

This is a spectacular hands on museum. They change out their displays on a regular basis to keep it fresh. Food is great and you can do courses for skills of yesteryear. A must stop when visiting Toowoomba.
