Museum on the Move

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

During this closure period, 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.​

We Want Your Perth Airport Memories for the New Museum


Do you remember flying into Perth Airport for the first time? Or maybe for the 100th time? The sounds and smells of the plane, the airport, the food, the turbulence, visiting the pilot, chatting with the stewardess? Are there images and memories of Perth from above that have stayed with you? We’re looking for stories that we can profile in our exciting new interactive Museum exhibition and we’d love to hear about your experiences and memories of Perth Airport! 

Please contact the Curator to share your story on 9477 7450 or email
