A Territory Story Exhibition

A Territory Story is a new, interactive exhibition that is a survey of the people, the places and the events that have shaped the Territory.

Visitors can expect to see a diversity of stories, from the story of Ayaigar, an Aboriginal man who received the Albert Medal from King George V, through to the wild, the quirky, the movers and shakers who led simply extraordinary lives.

The Northern Territory Library (NTL) developed A Territory Story in response to the strong community interest in Northern Territory history. The exhibition showcases the unique history of the Northern Territory and its stories to engage schools groups and cultural tourist.

NTL has worked to ensure A Territory Story does not replicate existing exhibitions, namely the Cyclone Tracy and the Bombing of Darwin, that are treated in depth by the Museum and Art Gallery Northern Territory and the Defence of Darwin Experience respectively.

Exhibition development and timeline

Over the past two years A Territory Story has been developed in consultation with the community and has included extensive concept and content creation phases and design phases.

We are excited to announce that we are moving into the final stages of the three year project with the tender being released for the build and construction phase.

The build of the project will take place during the first half of 2018 with completion mid-2018.  

More information

As the exhibition progresses through the build phase updates will be available through this website or the Northern Territory Library’s social media channels.
