Step back in time and experience life as it was. Packed with thousands of historical objects and exhibitions, the Millmerran Museum has often been described as "one of the best in Queensland". A participating Museum in the Toowoomba Region Transport Heritage Trail, it features fourteen historical buildings spread over an acre of leafy grounds; extensive displays including a 1950's School House, "Water Baby" Exhibit, Farming, Military, Life as Pioneer Woman, Indigenous Artefacts, and so much more.
