    A unexpectedly interesting museum. Free entry and definitely worth a visit. Well presented. Brilliant aboriginal art works and don't miss the maritime section with indigenous and historic vessels.

    Cyclone Tracy exhibition is worth the admission price alone.

    Worth a visit if you're in Darwin, the Cyclone Tracy exhibit is quite interesting.

    It's a shame they have a no photos policy. Fair enough in the art gallery but I don't understand why we can't take pictures in the museum.

    This is a great place to familiarise yourself with Aboriginal art. Museum houses a great display of both ancient and contemporary art from across the NT.

    I thought the cyclone "simulator" was a bit if a joke / but now having personally gone through one recently - it gives me the creeps
