Current exhibit about establishment of Northern Territory (1911?) & Deakin's intention to impose White Australia policy explains a lot. Very interesting. Emerged to find the gallery shop had closed...More

This museum, located a short bus ride from the centre of Darwin, is well worth a visit. Some interesting material on Cyclone Tracy and life in the Northern Territory. Not too many people either.

LOVED Darwin Museum! Absolutely fascinating stories from Cyclone Tracey and Darwin Bombing. My family visited for about 1 1/2 hours but I could have stayed much longer! The audio from the cyclone is a must as is the boats from various eras. Also Aboriginal art...More
