Make the most of your visit to the Museum and Art Gallery of the NT.

Enjoy a guided tour of one of our most beloved attractions.

John Hart from Walk Darwin on the Heritage Walk

Make the most of your visit to the Museum and Art Gallery of the NT in Darwin with a 1-hour guided overview of the galleries. You’ll leave with a greater connection to this beloved local institution that is a highlight of everyone’s visit to Darwin. 

You’ll be guided by a local who will share stories of the site’s history as they lead you through each of the open galleries, pointing out some highlights you might like to revisit and explore in greater depth. 

There are two times to choose from on each day we operate.

Walk Darwin is mindful that the Museum is a public space and so as not to impact the experience of other visitors to the Museum you’ll use an app to connect with your guide’s commentary.

To enable you to explore each gallery in a hygienic and socially distanced way, a smartphone or wifi compatible tablet and earbuds or headphones are required to hear your guide. You do not need data to participate on the day as you’ll connect to Walk Darwin’s free wifi network. Then it’s just pop your phone in your pocket and enjoy discovering!
