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.

To get to know Darwin is to also know its history and this makes the military museum a must-see on the list of attractions. Interesting facts such as the total number of bombs dropped on Darwin Harbour is more than what the Japanese did at Pearl Harbour. There are also smaller exhibits on Australian's presence in the Vietnam war amongst other conflicts. The outdoor section also presents old military vehicles, cannons and tanks on display.
Great way to spend an afternoon and learn a heap about the war effort in Darwin. Not sure why this history is not taught in schools in Australia. As an adult I had no idea our war involvement was so intense. Great displays, videos and sound bytes. Top effort to the curator and team at the Museum.
TheDarwin Military museum was awesome. So much to see and very interactive. The kids really enjoyed it. Great to see so much of the history has been preserved and available for others to see.
Grips at the heart. Very well set out. Great experience. A must do in Darwin. Be prepared to spend the whole day there
I am not a great fan of war history but the display is well done. More reading than I enjoy. The short video of the bombing is dramatic but gives little more information. Worth seeing.
