 Welcome to the Belmont Museum

Belmont Museum Temporary Closure

The Museum is temporarily closed to prepare for the move to the City’s amazing new community facility. 

Library and Heritage staff are hard at work researching and creating content as well as preparing previously unseen artifacts for the new exhibition spaces. The new Museum will take visitors on immersive journeys into Belmont’s past. From interactive displays to traditional hands-on play, there will be something for everyone! 

As always, Library and Heritage staff are available to answer questions and assist with your local history research. 

You will still find a variety of historical programs, projects and activities available at the Library over the closure period. Check out our What’s On section for more information or sign up for our mailing list.

Belmont Museum Oral Histories - Share Your Belmont Stories With Us!


The Belmont Museum's oral history program records the memories and experiences of people who have lived, worked or played in Belmont and surrounding areas. 

Their stories are fascinating, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always diverse, authentic and personal.

To listen to the stories and memories of Belmont's past click here. Copies are also available for loan from Ruth Faulkner Public Library. 

We are always looking for more Belmont stories and keen to record the memories of our Belmont locals past and present. Every life story is important to us!

We are interested in all eras of local history and people of all backgrounds. If you would like to share your story with us, or know someone whose story should be recorded, please fill in and send us an Oral History Nomination Form to be considered for inclusion in the Oral History Program.

If you would like more information on our oral history program, please contact the Curator on 9477 7450 or
