This is a relatively small museum and main attractions are cyclone Tracy, a small natural history section and a display of indigenous art. There is also a small collection of boats. The cafe has a nice view and is a pleasant place to have lunch.

A good collection of natural history as well as aboriginal and post-colonial art. The Cyclone Tracey exhibition is impressive and 'Sweetheart' the famous crocodile is huge. At present, the maritime exhibition is being renovated. The shady lawns make a great picnic spot.
