I saw a good display of aboriginal art at the library, an excellent photography exhibition and the wall sized patch work rug depicting the names of people who were stationed in Darwin in World War 1. More importantly it is close to the Supreme Court, in which there is a wonderful mosaic of an aboriginal original (which is also on display). There is also what I consider a wonderful original piece of the hand prints of women in custody and their thoughts on the justice system, as well as portraits of the gallery of judges who have presided. You can also sit in the upstairs gallery while court is in session. However out of courtesy we refrained from doing that. However we were happy with with the glimpses we got through the glass.

If you love libraries and/or history this is fantastic. It's inside the Parliament House building which is free to enter and is through the main hall. The library is over a few levels with a GREAT section of books also downstairs there is a big map section and aerial photograph section. There is also a big patchwork quilt on the wall with a patch signed by someone who was in Darwin during the second world war. If you're after books or articles or want to know anything, the staff are genuinely helpful. I am so glad I went.
