Had heard excellent reports about this exhibition so made it a must do when we visited Darwin. The layout and quality of the exhibition is world class, a must see for Australians young and old.

Very interesting to learn about some of the history. The 3D experience is awesome (I couldn't do the full thing as learnt that my fear of heights is totally in the mind).

Combined with the Flying Doctors display.

Food hall style eateries right next door.

Although I'm not a fan of war museums, I enjoyed visiting this museum. There were plenty of interesting interactive displays, historical material and fascinating audio-visuals that dealt with personal stories and recollections of the bombings and attacks on Darwin in WWII. There were also extensive external displays of equipment and memorabilia. Educational, informative and with great air-conditioning (which makes a real difference to your enjoyment of visiting places in this hot climate).

Lots of information inside and lots of vehicles and equipment outside. The inside section was well presented visually, however there was often lots of different competing auditory presentations which made it difficult to concentrate on and really listen to the particular audio presentation you wish to listen to. I was very interested in the presentations inside but found it too difficult to remain in there and listen. Theater presentation is good.

The virtual reality part of the experience was fantastic I actually had to hold onto the walls between the booths as it felt as if I was going to fall off the pier. I was a fantastic experience. It was a special way to portray the bombing of Darwin by including you in the bombing and devastation that Darwin experienced,
