Well worth a visit. A very interesting and comprehensive exhibit about the effects of cyclone Tracy before, during and after.

Excellent gallery. Cyclone Tracey exhibition very informative. Natural Science display great. The only disappointment was the Maritime Section was closed for alterations.

If you want serious research of Darwin and the NY this is the place for a month or more visit. If you just want an afternoon of fascinating objects and thought provoking displays this is the place to see.

Very impressive indigenous exhibition- well curated with a high level of appreciation of the issues facing indigenous communities and how poorly our nation has served our first peoples. Loved all the other exhibitions.
