Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory reviews
This has to be one of the most interesting and beautifully curated Australian regional museums. The whole place was great with lots of interesting history of the NT as well as a well curated art... more »
A great gallery that’s an easy hike from beach. The year 12 art exhibition had some exceptional promising artists. Shame more of the gallery was t open or art wasn’t displayed in the empty shop... more »
The travelling exhibition of Sidney Nolan's iconic Ned Kelly paintings is fantastic, especially if you've got kids. I took my 6 year old granddaughter to see it and she was given a mini iPad with descriptions of the paintings written in the character of Ned Kelly and a Ned Kelly doll to take around. We both loved it and it led to some very interesting discussions about hero or villain. Best $3 spent in a long while. Also don't miss the Therese Ritchie retrospective and the solar system exhibition.
Brilliant free outing. Thought that others were probably starved for ideas around what to do in Darwin when it was suggested to us... however we stayed for over 3 hours and enjoyed every minute. Beautifully set out stages of displays and easy to follow stories and information. No one standout area, all were a brilliant effort!
