    Homage to the pilots who have served Alice Springs, sometimes at the risk of their lives. Look at implantation and the conquest of the settlers in an "unwelcoming" area.

  • Extensive collection of fossils and meteorites. Great place to take those geology lovers close to you. Nearby bus stop
  • A surprisingly extensive selection of meteorites, minerals, fossils and animal displays. I enjoyed it immensely. And at $15 it was a bargain, with the galleries and the rest of the cultural centre thrown in. Didn't visit the cafe so can't comment on that.
  • Not worth it, they have a bunch of rocks and fossils and a docen aboriginal artifacts. The art gallery is contemporary "crafty" art. All done in less than two hours
  • Great customer service. Not many exhibits but worth a look.
  • Great place for geologist.
