Aboriginal art, heritage and culture, Cyclone Tracy, boats, an excellent B&W photo gallery depicting life in the top end back in the day, and much, much more. And this is the place to see 'Sweetheart.' Worth a visit when in Darwin. Admission is free.

Well worth a trip, great info about the post war British migration and cyclone tracy. But disappointed that there wasn't a great deal of aboriginal or torrens strait islanders history /artefacts. Gallery was fantastic!
