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.


MUSEUM OPEN AGAIN

The Belmont Museum is OPEN again!  To celebrate the opening our our new Mini Museum in the Ruth Faulkner Public Library we are hosting a special exhibition in conjunction with the Australian Heritage Festival.

'A Mother's Voice: Stories of Parenting in Belmont' is open to the public from Tuesday, 18 April to Thursday, 15 June 2017.
It is a celebration of motherhood over many generations and ties in with this year's Australian Heritage Festival theme, 'Having a Voice'. Through oral histories, photographs, stories and artefacts, discover the highs and lows of parenting through the ages. Hear from Belmont based mothers of all walks of life, from 19th century servants to migrant mums and local activists. Come along and share your own memories of your mum. Check it out during the Museum's new expanded opening hours in the Ruth Faulkner Public Library, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and for a limited time only on Saturdays, 9am to 12noon.

  • Belmont Historical Society

The City of Belmont Museum was opened in 1988 by the Belmont Historical Society as Belmont Council’s contribution to commemorate the Bicentennial. This group of passionate volunteers worked tirelessly for over 20 years, welcoming visitors to experience Belmont’s past through their unique collection of artefacts and images. They continue to support the museum through regular management consultation, running open days and assisting with visiting groups.
