Combines a natural history and art museum in one place. There were displays of native animals of Australia and Sweetheart, the giant crocodile shot and killed near Darwin in the 1970s, as well as a display on the history of Cyclone Tracy, which nearly leveled the town in 1974. At the time I was there, there was an AMAZING exhibit on contemporary aboriginal artists. There was a diverse collection of working artists from all over Australia, showing the traditional dot style of paintings, as well as exposure to other artistic traditions. And the museum is FREE!
