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 will need to pack up its extensive collection and ‘bunk in’ with the Ruth Faulkner Public Library while plans are underway for the new building.
As of October 1 the Museum will be closed to prepare for the big move.
The Museum’s unique exhibitions and fun, hands-on activities will be available again at the Ruth Faulkner Public Library in 2017.
Would you like to be part of this historic move? The Belmont Museum may need additional experienced volunteers to help with the relocation of artefacts. If you are interested, please contact the Curator on 9477 7450 or email email@example.com.
