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.

Very good museum. Greatly informative as to much of Australias history. Must see if in darwin
A very interesting and informative display of the bombing of darwin and other military facts. The audio visual presentation was full on but I really enjoyed it.
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.
Interesting place, with lots of items from WW I, WW II and Vietnamita war. You can see uniforms, weapons, plane engine, tanks, and other vehicles used in combat. There are interactive films where you can understand the history and learning more about all concerned to this epoque. If it's rainny don't worry, there are umbrellas what you can get to the tour. Go and enjoy!!
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.
