Museum Services

The NT Chinese Museum provides a comprehensive account of the Chinese people in the Top End of the Territory from 1874 to the present day through photographs, memorabilia, heritage objects and family history.

The Museum presents a story of grit and determination and the contribution of the Chinese people to the development of the Northern Territory. A particular focus is the impact of World War II: the bombing of Darwin, the fate of China Town and the contribution by the Darwin Chinese people in their service to Australia.

School visits are especially welcome when the Museum volunteer staff can share with students the participation of the Chinese people in the history of the Northern Territory and their contribution to the cosmopolitan nature of Darwin today.

The NT Chinese Museum welcomes contact by researchers – whether this is understanding your family history or for academic research.
