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.

Defence Of Darwin Experience, Darwin Reviews
A fascinating and interesting presentation of the military history of Darwin, including the bombing of Darwin on 19 February 1942. The audio visual presentation in particular was amazing. Highly recommended if you are visiting Darwin.
I loved this place. It isn't huge but it is large. Really interesting. There are things to read inside and things to do outside. A great place. Nice food and coffee too.
Pleasnt surrounds. Well presented info. Some IT not working on the day. Found out things they never taught us in school. Video/movie well worth watching. Small cafe with limited offerings was ok.
The defense of Darwin during WWII was more frontline than many people know or appreciate. This museum serves to redress that and at the same time truly honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us all. I was most impressed with the collection and recommend a visit.
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!
