MUSEUM ON THE MOVE
Have you heard about the newly envisioned City of Belmont multipurpose community building for the Faulkner Civic Precinct?
Did you know it will include the Museum, as well as a Library, Senior Citizens Centre, office spaces, crèche and café?
As part of the exciting new development, the Belmont Museum has had to pack up its extensive collection and ‘bunk in’ with the Ruth Faulkner Public Library while plans are underway for the new building.
Visit the Ghosts of Belmont Past… if you dare!
The Mini Museum in the Ruth Faulkner Public Library might be small, but it can certainly be creepy! Visit today and check out the new exhibition for Halloween, Haunted Belmont, from September to November 2017.
