Museum & Library Tours
The Belmont Museum and Ruth Faulkner Library offer joint events for students. Our one hour double dip Library and Museum tours are split up into two 30 minute sessions - whilst half the group tour the library, the other half tour the museum and then the groups swap.
Tours include interactive activities catering for all levels. Visit times can be booked for Monday or Tuesday mornings from 9am to 12noon or Thursday’s after 1pm. We can tailor group tours to suit you.
Tours provide appropriate and relevant education programs using the museum's collection and the local history collection to support the National Curriculum in History for the following year levels:
- Foundation Year through to Year Ten
And WACE in:
- Modern History for Years 11 and 12 (where a focus on Australian History is taken)

- Demonstrate links between local history and national/world history
- Provide behind-the-scenes access to the collection
- Develop partnerships with schools
- Assist teachers in meeting assessable outcomes for the curriculum
