The Belt Museum is housed in the old jail building next to the foot bridge over Belt Creek. The museum is housed in a building that was originally built as a city jail in 1895 during the boom years of the coal mines, when the city was commonly referred to as 'Little Pittsburgh,' 'Coal Banks,' or 'Black Diamond City.' The museum's exhibits include a historic jail cell, a coal mine, records and photos, and the work of local artists.
Located on the south end of Castner Street, the main street for businesses in Belt. Within walking distance to Harvest Moon Brewery and renovated buildings housing Belt Creek Brew Pub, Harvest Moon Saloon and Belt Theater.
