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.
