Defence Of Darwin Experience - Review
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.

What a great museum. A real surprise. It's not the most advanced there is, but it has some really great pieces and machinery and weaponry I've never seen before. The biggest surprise was walking around a corner and staring into the barrel of a massive canon. This is well worth visiting!
A great place to visit. Lots of really interesting historical items from WW2, records, photos and much more. Surrounding gun turrets and other buildings also very interesting.
Great museum. Has multiple parts. The newest is the permanent exhibition about the attack on Darwin in WWII, which is done really well with lots of different artifacts and multimedia presentation. The older part of the museum is a hodge-podge dedicated to the major wars/conflicts that Australia was involved in up through Vietnam. The second part wasn't as well curated with a cohesive story like the Darwin Experience portion, but was still interesting. Worth a visit! Note: they are open longer hours (9:30-5) during the dry season (May 1-Oct 31).
Lots of awesome artifacts and exhibits, but can be a bit much/dry unless you’re a serious military history buff. Definitely worth it if you have a few hours to spare.
Very informative display. The interactive video and sound story displays were great. The short film was emotionally charged and enlightening.
