I chose a Sunday to go, bad idea. Full of screaming children, Not my idea of a good time. Overall the place is huge! It was amazing to walk through the short time I was there. The variety of different displays was beyond anything I expected.It was just a short walk from my hotel. I would love to go again and choose a day where the children may be in school to truly take the time and stop and read the plaques.

excellent Aboriginis exhibit! That is what we wanted to see. The Australian government finally apologized for its earlier treatment of The Aborigines.
