This museum and art gallery is a must for people who are into this type of activity. The cyclone room is really good and the other exhibits are also very good. Lovely and cool on a hot day and the staff are extremely helpful.

This was a great way to spend a couple of hours. Plenty of NT to see and experience esp the impact of Cyclone Tracey and Sweetheart. The restaurant had good food and good service at a reasonable price. Must see.

Loved the horrific creatures that Australia has! It's a wonder we stepped outdoors! haha. This museum covered everything from Darwin's theories to Cyclone Tracey to creatures great and small. Well worth an afternoon!

The aboriginal art collection is very good as well as the Cyclone Tracy display. The large boat collection is also quite unique. Nice location near the water and a welcome respite from the heat during the day.

Very good and relevant museum. The Cyclone Tracy exhibit is very well done. Make sure you make the time to see the Maritime section. Do lunch in the restaurant - excellent service, fabulous views and great food.
