The heritage-listed home that serves as the Leuralla Toy and Railway Museum
The Leuralla Toy and Railway Museum is housed in one of the oldest Blue Mountains heritage-listed homes, the design of which was influenced by world-famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. It is set on 12 acres of beautiful cool-climate gardens by Paul Sorensen, an important creative influence on many mountain gardens.

The museum has the largest collection of 20th century toys, trains, and associated memorabilia in the southern hemisphere, which include Barbie, Popeye, Tintin and Alice in Wonderland. Lenci and Kathe Kruse dolls, as well as Steiff teddy bears, are also on display. Beyond these toys and the opportunity it gives everyone to a glimpse of the past, the Leuralla Toy and Railway Museum also has historical and royal significance. It played host to the Royal Visit in February 1954 of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and HRH the Duke of Edinburgh. A photographic record of this event is on display on the wall at the foyer.
