Beautifully curated exhibition on the history of Darwin and the Larrakeyah people
Jun 2021 • Couples
What a great find this was! While a small exhibition it is beautifully curated and thoughtfully presented. Some great historical movies and lovely indigenous crafts. It’s free but not open Mondays

Amazing insights into the Northern Territory
Oct 2019
You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but you can certainly judge a city by its main library--in this case the main library for the Northern Territory. It has temporary exhibitions, but it's current permanent display "A Territory Story" is a rich overview of the region before and after the coming of Europeans--and the many other groups that now call it home. It's a lovely place to browse, read and relax--as well as free WiFi. A must visit if you are in Darwin.

A lovely building and a good library.

This library is located within a pleasant building, that is beautifully lit in the evenings.
There was some function being held in the library during our visit, so we were limited to only several parts of the building.

MUST VISIT.

Part of the historic area of Darwin which was attacked by bombing in WW11. Certainly worth having a look at, especially the restored buildings and the colonial archtecture

Not what we expected

Here there are a lot of displays including interactive mediums and a bus ride out to Uluru in the early 70's the librarian was very helpful in showing us items we may have missed

Awesome
Oct 2019 • Solo
Off to the side of Parliament House is the NT library. I really enjoyed my visit. Inside to the left is a small but wonderful display covering old Darwin and some indigenous culture. information is well presented and some braille options too. There is a van set up inside where you can sit and watch some old videos of Darwin. Great information about the stolen generation too. Spend some time exploring. I stayed an hour but could have been longer had I engaged more with the interactive displays.

Parliament House and Library

Wandered in here and loved the history available to peruse in the library, and seeing the place where parliament sits as well. Beautiful outlook over the sea. The interior is quite spectacular.

The library is inside Parliament House
Jul 2019 • Family
Has a small display on the history of Darwin and its people.
If you are going to Parliament House it is worth visiting the library as well.

The history of Darwin and Northern Territory.

We were lucky enough to view the new display depicting the history of the Northern Territory and Darwin and its people. It was very informative. Well worth a visit.
