Bentley Museum

The Bentley Museum is located at 4929–51 Avenue, Bentley. The museum is governed by the Bentley Museum Society and is housed in a pioneer home from the Bentley area that has been moved into the village. It features a hospital room and a 1920’s bedroom. There is a tribute to the Aboriginal community and an agricultural building with stable displays and an antique store. There is also an exhibit, including uniforms and video interviews, that honours war veterans. Special demonstrations take place during the Agricultural Fair Days, the Local Ladies Club meetings are hosted at the museum, and special tours are arranged for school children and service clubs, such as Boy Scouts and Girl Guides. Lunches are also served at the Farmers Market.
