  • The museum is well worth a visit. There is so much to learn about the history of Katherine and the indigenous people. It is nicely laid out and the staff were very helpful and informative.

  • Give yourself plenty of time to look around here. So interesting. So much to read if you're interested in the history of Australia.
  • Great place to visit, great staff and friendly service. Excellent displays
  • Lovely museum, lot's of interesting information and displays.
  • Very well set out. So much history here. Lots of interesting artefacts. Was $10 to get in and around. Nice looking garden that we didn't venture into. I was excited to learn about the local mob here and their fight for their lands including getting the title to the Katherine Gorge. 🌻
  • An interesting place to visit. There are displays of clothing and wedding dresses, some from when the war visited the area. History of early telegraph lines, flying doctors and other settlers.
