About Defence Of Darwin Experience, Darwin
World War II was a harrowing time for the world, especially for the countries involved directly- Australia being one such nation. Not many know this, but the city of Darwin played an important role during the War. The Bombing of Darwin is a dark period in the history of the world, where the Japanese dropped bombs killing nearly a 1000 plus people. The interactive museum that is the Defence of Darwin Experience aims at conveying and recreating the days between the years 1932-45, to give the audience a true taste of what it was to live through the days of war. Apart from recreating the bombing, the museum also offers firsthand accounts of people who have survived that period, objects retrieved from the destruction war bought with it and multimedia presentations.

This is a MUST do if you ever visit Darwin. Worth the money and the time you spend walking around. So much history and a unique insight into Darwin's involvement in the war. Take your time, read and take in all the audio and visual exhibits its really unique! There are a lot of artifacts and other unique items from the war outside the main hall, include one of the watchtowers. Various guns, uniforms, cannons none of which are closed off, you can really get close to them and see every little detail. Oh and they have coconut water for $4, grab a few on the way out of the main hall cos if visit in the wet (summer) season you'll need it. The entire place will take about 2 hours to really get through without rushing through
Really well set out. Kept our 2 young kids enthralled despite the heat in the outdoor section, indoor videos and layout was also excellent.
