Arguably the biggest museum in Darwin, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory houses everything from the history and cultural of the indigenous inhabitants of the land- the Aborigines to the history of the Northern Territory and natural sciences, to name a few. Within the premises of this huge museum, there is an entire room dedicated to the catastrophic Cyclone Tracy and how life was before and after the devastation struck. It’s a dark room, where they re-enact the entire cyclone, sounds and all! Don’t be too shaken by this room, because the next exhibit on your list is in the stuffed animals’ department- the 16 foot saltwater crocodile, Sweetheart, who wrecked havoc on fishing dinghies during the 70’s.

Beautiful space in a stunning location. Gallery atmosphere is calming and allows you to absorb the subjects. The museum has incredible taxidermy displays and a real focus on its local flora and fauna.
Some really interesting stuff. The cyclone Tracey section was very emotive! Definitely worth a look. The coffee shop was a nice treat also.
Cafe inside ruins whole experience. Neither authentic nor genuine the cafe inside is not a good look for museum. It doesn’t represent any History of NT. It should be stopped doing business inside such a great place.
Had an amazing experience at the Museum. So much information to absorb, we spend a good couple of hours there. My 2 year old loved it too!!!
Enjoyed our whole experience. All the gallery displays were really informative. Cyclone Tracy was amazing. It certainly brought to life what people went through and came out the other side showing great resilience and determination to rebuild their lives. We spent a couple of hours at the museum and art gallery and the bonus was we weren't frozen as has been the case in a lot of other places. Thank you.
