Belmont Museum​

At the Belmont Mini-Museum you will discover a unique collection of artefacts relating to the local history of the districts within the City of Belmont. From a beautiful stained glass window to a giant map, a quirky false teeth vulcaniser to early technology, there is something for everyone in our hands-on Museum.

Information for Educators

Ready for Relocation

To prepare for the move to the City’s new community facility, the library will be closed from Monday, 10 February to Saturday, 22 February 2020. The mini-library will reopen from 9am on Monday, 24 February 2020. ​

The move to the new facility will occur in stages. ​To ensure we can provide similar services once the relocation to our new building begins, the current space will be converted to a mini-library during this initial closure. 

Online services (including ebooks) will be available throughout the closure and items can be returned via our 24/7 after-hours chute at any time. Phone or email enquiries can be made between 9am and 5pm on weekdays. Library staff will be available at the Civic Centre from 2pm to 4pm weekdays for hold pick-ups and general queries.
