Darwin Military Museum


Darwin Military Museum

Set in four acres of tropical gardens by the sea, Darwin Military Museum and the Defence of Darwin Experience are not just for the military enthusiast, but for every member of the family.

The Darwin Military Museum tells the story of the bombing of Darwin on 19th February 1942. It was officially opened on 18th February 2012 to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of that fateful day.

The DMM has displays in a number of locations within the precinct including an Australians Under Arms exhibition in the Sidney Williams hut adjacent to the Command Posts (CP), a Vietnam War display in the original power generating room below the gundeck in gun emplacement 2 and of course the Defence of Darwin Experience (DDE), an ultra-modern, hi-tech, interactive multi-media audio-visual experience.
