The Darwin museum is a small, but great attraction up in Darwin, a wonderful way to quickly absorb a lot about the region, its history and what makes it special.
When we lived in Darwin the museum was a regular family visit location. There is something for everyone here. Our kids used to love the children's room, the animal displays and the turtles in the pond outside. For ourselves we loved the great collection of aboriginal art from the region and whatever exhibition happened to be in town. For visitors to Darwin we would send them straight to the Cyclone Tracey exhibit, which gives a powerful and slightly chilling look into the devastating effect that the cyclone had on Darwin. The maritime museum part is a bit small, but even that is well done for those interested in the subject matter. Sometimes it was just a great place to come and spend a bit of time in air-conditioning.
Combine a visit with a coffee or lunch at the attached restaurant and you have a very nice day trip.
Plus did I mention it is free.
