Benalla has an interesting connection to Ned Kelly that I didn't know about. There is an extensive display in the museum. 'Weary' Dunlop is from Benalla and there is much to see and read about him & other war veterans. The most investing display was...More

Interesting coverage of the Ned Kelly family links to Benalla township. Good interesting video on the Kellys. Also museum houses a great exhibition of fashion clothing over the period 50 to 80s. Very friendly and helpful staff. Small fee to enter but good value!

This is a well presented regional museum. Ned Kelly's sash is the drawcard, but there are also very interesting and well presented costume exhibits, and displays of wartime memorabilia. Recommended.
