Benalla Costume and Kelly Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Benalla Costume and Kelly Museum is an accredited museum, specialising in Costumes from the 1750’s, the Ned Kelly story and the establishment of Benalla.

The Museum is centrally located on the bank of Lake Benalla (part of the Broken River) adjacent to the unique Ceramic Mural and across the lake from the Botanical Gardens and the outstanding Regional Art Gallery.

Within the museum there are five galleries, of which two are dedicated to costume exhibitions and one to the Kelly story. It is the only public costume museum of its kind in Victoria; the costume collection includes items dating from the 1750s.

The museum complex includes the Historical Society Research Room, the Visitor Information Centre, a gift shop and self-service tea room.

Established in 1967 the museum is managed entirely by volunteer members of the Benalla Historical Society Inc. who have overseen its development from a single room in the Mechanics Institute building to an award-winning museum.
