At the Belmont Mini-Museum you will discover a unique collection of artefacts relating to the local history of the districts within the City of Belmont. From a beautiful stained glass window to a giant map, a quirky false teeth vulcaniser to early technology, there is something for everyone in our hands-on Museum.
As part of the exciting new Community Centre development, the Belmont Museum is currently ‘bunked in’ with the Ruth Faulkner Public Library. The display space may be smaller but great things can come in small packages! Our exhibitions continue to change regularly so be sure to check our What’s On section or sign up for our mailing list.
Telephone 9477 7450 or 9477 7150 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday to make an appointment, excursion or group booking and discover your local history.
