Free general entry allowed you access to the Cyclone Tracy display and several other interesting exhibits. Really well presented, allow a couple of hours to see it all.

This museum covers a lot of territory (no pun intended). A bit of natural history, a bit of local history, art, natural science. But it is all done well. And it has a pretty good cafe as well.

If you have been here, don't go back, nothing has changed. Good thing it is free. May be OK to fill in a wet day but otherwise give it a miss.

The cyclone Tracey exhibit really moved me. I remember it happening, even though I was still at school. The use of music to evoke the time is very well done. Walking in to a darkened room to hear the shriek of the cyclone which someone...More
