Museum and Gallery of the Northern Territory
A place to see the real NT
The Museum and Art Gallery was opened in 1981 on Larrakia Land. Entry is free and you really wouldn’t mind having to pay after a visit if the NT Government did decide to charge.
There are displays ranging from Indigenous Art, wildlife, sea creatures, Sweetheart the crocodile, sacred objects, maritime history and a look at what happened in 1974 when Cyclone Tracy destroyed much of Darwin over Christmas. There are also often travelling displays in the Museum which are worth checking out.
The Cornucopia Café at the museum is the perfect stop after your visit to the museum and the views from the deck out over the Fannie Bay area are lovely.
