Small, compact museum , dedicated to the main issues of Darwin: the aborigine history, the fauna and flora, some modern art. Excellent way to pass a couple of hours on a hot afternoon!

Really enjoyed my visit here, especially the Franck Gohier exhibit and Indigenous art. Knowing absolutely nothing about the history of Darwin, I found the Cyclone Tracy exhibit really interesting. The student art was also really impressive.

We visited with our 8 year old grand daughter. She particularly liked the bird, fish and other NT animal displays and happily posed for a photo in front of Sweetheart. My wife and I have been before so we just tagged along as she chose...More

The art gallery is small with exhibition of Cyclone Tracey. There was also an exhibition which was great and it is well worth a visit. There were no food or drink cafe available.

Just went to see sweetheart's remains and the cyclone Tracy exibit. It's a very big museum and well set out. We were a little pushed for time on that day - we will return

Great that this is a free attraction, however there is too much art. There was a great display about Cyclone Tracy. If you are looking for Darwin history this iz not really the place.

A lovely coastal walk from the city to a lovely museum. I was very moved by the aboriginal art and their voices against oppression. The boats in the maritime section were fascinating.

Not sure what to say; Cyclone Tracy exhibits were interesting but not compelling and the usual collection of shells, snakes etc. Plus a huge croc. Art on display was good. Maybe it’s just a bit small, dunno but didn’t quite hit the mark for us....More
