Valley Heights Locomotive Depot Heritage Museum, Valley Heights

The Valley Heights Locomotive Depot Heritage Museum was formed in 1988 to preserve and develop the former Valley Heights Locomotive Depot into a Railway and Heritage Museum.

The Valley Heights Museum is a Not for Profit organization and is also affiliated with Transport Heritage NSW (formerly the NSW Rail Transport Museum) as their Blue Mountains Division.

Located at Valley Heights, (77 kilometres west of Sydney), in the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains, the Museum is an easy 75 minute drive from the Sydney CBD. Hourly trains services to and from Sydney (Central) also service Valley Heights, with the Museum a short 15 minute walk from the station.

Our Museum displays a collection of both Railway and Tramway exhibits as well as miscellaneous small exhibits, Railway Art and Model Railway. A shop offering a range of souvenirs and light refreshments is also available for our visitors convenience.

The Steam Tram & Railway Preservation Society are also located on site and operate the Valley Heights Steam Tramway on open days (subject to certain conditions), between February and December.

The Museum is open on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of most months (except 2nd Sunday of May - Mothers Day and 4th Sunday of December), from 10am to 4pm. Our Admission charge includes Museum Entry and Unlimited rides, the proceeds of which go towards to ongoing improvement of the Museum.

  • The team at the front counter were really pleasant and had a bit of a joke. Entry fee was reasonable as you could stay as long as you liked. The tram ride was good, the trains on show were interesting...  more »
  • Great day out for a family. Have a couple of rides on the steam tram, look around the roundhouse and watch the model trains. The model trains were my boys’ favourite. The place is run by really nice people who are passionate about the place and its history. If you’re a train nerd or raising a couple of them you’ll love this place.
  • Such fun for all ages. So interesting, and beautifully presented. With a sweet little onsite cafe for refreshments, and dedicated volunteers, many of whom were dressed in period costume. Love the old retro tickets and memorabilia all in situ. The site is not so large as to be overwhelming, it was just the right size and so-o pleasant. A tonic.
