We have also held Belmont Museum Open Days in conjunction with the Belmont Historical Society, Antiques and Collectables Free Valuation Days (bring along your treasured possessions and discover the value of your antique collectable or antique jewellery) and Free Antique Restoration tips.

For families we have Pyjama Story Time at the Museum events - rug up your kids aged 2 to 6 years in their comfiest pyjamas for a special story time show at the Museum, and take home a Museum gift bag afterwards.

Watch this space for updates and more details, or drop into the museum to find out what’s happening.


Memories of Redcliffe

The Belmont Museum is now collecting oral histories, stories and memorabilia from the people who live in the Development Area 6 (DA6) area of Redcliffe, or have significant memories of it. We need your help to preserve this amazing history!

Development Area 6 or 'DA6', in Redcliffe, is about to undergo some significant changes as part of the expansion of Perth Airport and its facilities. The area is bounded by Tonkin Highway, Great Eastern Highway, Coolgardie Avenue, Redcliffe Road and Fauntleroy Avenue.

This is an area that has traditionally attracted a large migrant community, particularly in the post-war period. Many people built their houses with their own hands and with the help of friends and family, making Redcliffe their home.

The Local History Curator would love to hear from anyone who may want to share their experiences of living in this area. For further information please telephone the Belmont Museum on 9477 7450 or email museum@belmont.wa.gov.au.
