This museum gives a good overview of the area history.
Clean and comfortable.
Also a nice place to have a picnic lunch in the gardens.

The displays are very good and some of best information is about everyday life in the region and how it has changed. There is flying doctor aircraft to admire which was plotted by a committed but somewhat maverick physician who in the best traditions of the area was the bane of the local bureaucrats. The section on the devastating Katherine floods was both interesting and eye opening.

We enjoyed the old part of the museum better than the new one in the hangar, especially all the old photos and stories from the past. We were hoping for a coffee which was advertised but they're not serving anything at the moment, so check before you go!

This is a must see if visiting Katherine. This place has so much history, with film and relics to give a great picture of early life in this place. There's a new building to be opened shortly, which will be great to see the exhibit is more space. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, even taking photos of me in the grounds. Well worth a visit, and plenty for the children to see and explore. The fragrance from the huge frangipani trees was also a treat!

We now know the correct pronunciation of Katherine.
A great display of local relics that takes you back to the hard days of colonisation in the Northern Territory.
Having lived in Katherine for over 2 years we finally stoped in for a look.
To our surprise the amount of items on display was larger than we envisaged.
If you have the time, on the way back from the Gorge drop in for a look, you will be pleasantly surprised.
