Benalla Costume and Kelly Museum


Benalla Costume and Kelly Museum

The Benalla Costume and Kelly Museum was founded in 1967 and is the only public costume museum of its kind in Victoria.

It is managed entirely by volunteer members of the Benalla & District Historical Society Inc. and is a splendid example of how the skills of an enthusiastic and talented group can produce excellence.

Benalla is situated on the main highway and rail link between Melbourne and Sydney, just two hours from Melbourne. The Museum is centrally located on the bank of Lake Benalla adjacent to the Ceramic Mural, and opposite the Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens.

The Historical Society also has a 'Research Room' in the Museum in which early Benalla newspapers, books, documents, and pictures are stored. The Research Room is open to the public for research purposes on Wednesdays from 12.30 to 3.30pm throughout the year for those who may wish to explore the annals of Benalla's History. For more about this facility, click on the "Research Room" link at the top of the page.

The costume collection dates from 1770 to the present, and is shown in regularly changing exhibitions of dressed models, with appropriate accessories and decor to suit the theme of the exhibition.

The Museum complex in Mair Street also houses the VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE with local tourist and accommodation information, and THE CREATORS GALLERY selling quality art and craft and souvenirs.

And you can enjoy a tea or coffee in our Tea Room!

So this Museum is a real gem - and well worth a visit!
