Visited the museum and art gallery whilst on a recent stay and I would have to say that after visiting the Cyclone Tracy exhibit I came away in awe of what happened to the town. Whilst not a huge museum or art gallery it certainly is a worthwhile visit whilst in Darwin

The museum is large, airy and well airconditioned! The special display on Cyclone Tracy was informative and unique.It was refreshing to go to an activity that was for free. Highly recommended.

An interesting museum with a wonderful collection of Aboriginal Art, fossils, natural history, all beautifully documented and explained. There is a room giving the impression of Cyclone Tracy and photos and documentation of the destruction of Darwin at the time. It is well worth the visit. There is also a very good Museum shop and an excellent café with a water view at the front of the museum.

What a joy this museum was to visit. Small but full of so many interesting exhibits. I had been told by a friend that I had to see Sweetheart. Some croc! Also, the Cyclone Tracy exhibit which was excellent. It brought back rather too many memories of tornados back home! There was a magnificent exhibit of modern aboriginal art which I loved. Definitely worth a visit.

As a visitor to Darwin, I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent here. Great exhibits with many interesting displays.

The highlight was the Cyclone Tracy exhibition - really well done and something that you must see if you are visiting Darwin.

Sweetheart is also must see!

This museum is great for young and old and a wonderful (free) place to enjoy for a couple of hours.
