Temple is open
Jun 2021
Looks like Museum is closed. Temple is good, not very big. Interesting to visit. Not that much to see.

Nice little gem of a museum in Darwin!
Jun 2021
The museum was recommend to me and since I am very interested in museums & galleries I was keen to visit. Although it was closed during the pandemic, I had contacted the museum and Neville kindly agreed to meet my friends & I.
We all learnt so much about Darwin's history and the contribution of the Chinese community in the Territory. Neville was an immense source of information and eagerly shared this. I was intrigued that a major source of funding is the carpark! The museum comprises many aspects - family history, media articles, artefacts from the temple etc. We had a look into the temple as well which anyone can pop into. I also loved the huge marble artefacts outside the complex

Such a quiet and serene place to visit and experience the layout and symbolism of the Chinese culture. Very well preserved, clean and well maintained inside and out. Close to the city and well worth a visit.

The temple is beautiful inside and well worth visiting; however, we just missed the closing time for the museum, so I can't comment on that.

History of the Chinese in Darwin
Oct 2019
We were greeted by the lone staff member who told us about the history of Chinese people in Darwin. The Chinese have been here for almost as long as there has been a white settlement. He explained why there is no china town and many other points of interest. If you are ever in Darwin, go there.

Interesting history
Oct 2019 • Solo
Small museum with a $4 entry fee. The museum has a lot of interesting photos etc and lots of reading. I enjoyed having the owner chat and explaine the history of Chinatown. It's a bit run down. However is a different side to Darwin and was worth an hour or so.

Absolutely fascinating
Jul 2019
I was pleasantly surprised with this historical perspective of Darwin's history. Unfortunately we did try to find Chinatown but that no longer exist. We did however stumble across this place and spent hours just looking at all the information. Definitely something to add to your itinerary when visiting Darwin
