Darwin Military Museum Darwin
Where are we going today?
The Defence of Darwin Experience at Darwin Military Museum provides visitors with an immersive, interactive, multimedia experience: the story of Darwin's role in World War II, in a compelling manner accessible to older children, though younger ones can enjoy studying the unusual equipment.
The exhibition space includes the Bombing of Darwin Gallery, iconic objects from that time, firsthand accounts and multimedia presentations. There is a great range of inspiring anecdotal history to capture the moods of the time to help children imagine.
The new Experience is surrounded by the other buildings and artifacts of the Darwin Military Museum: artillery pieces; vehicles, uniforms, firearms, models and paintings and much more. Kids into soldiers and uniforms will be very happy indeed!
The Darwin Military Museum, while focused on WWII, is proud to highlight the complete military history of the north of the continent, so as educational trips go this one has plenty of scope.

Love going here when I visit Darwin. Really great piece of history and a fantastic collection of guns, vehicles, etc. Check out the giant coastal gun. Amazing!

Interesting place, well worth spending a few hours there. Watch the video near the entrance - the old bloke's story is great.
