Kelly armour video

Step inside the famous suit of armour that Ned Kelly wore on the day he was captured by police. This video offers a virtual reconstruction of the armour and some background to the fateful siege in Glenrowan in 1880.

Learn how the armour was made, how Kelly tested it before the battle, and how it contributed to the 'Kelly myth'.

You can see the Kelly armour on display in The changing face of Victoria exhibition in the Dome Galleries.
