The museum is not what big city people are used to, being much smaller than we expect. However, the exhibits are beautifully presented, varied and unusual. Shame the marine exhibition was partly closed, but all in all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The museum was a must for us in Darwin. After traveling extensively in Queensland we needed to see the Sweetheart crocodile exhibit. The Cyclone Tracey exhibit was also amazing. It was a great attraction to visit during the wet season.
