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!

One of the highlights was definitely the gigantic dolls' house with amazingly meticulous details, which would interest both kids and adults. We could have spent much...More
