Not the biggest but certainly houses an excellent and varied range of exhibits. Hands on activities which really occupied our boys. They love it and it is their favourite place behind Science Works in Brisbane. I like their coffee.

Always a pleasure to visit this small-ish museum. Staff, volunteers, cafe, displays, special events - all worth a visit and often take my grandkids there when they're visiting Toowoomba. Has never dispappointed. Cafe has a good range and well-priced too.
