Djómi Museum

The Djómi Museum is home to a large, unique and extremely valuable cultural collection of national and international significance, the beginnings of which were established in the 1970s. It features important bark paintings and sculptural works, artefacts and items of material culture, as well as a display of weavings and historical photographs. The collection has largely been built through acquisitions from Maningrida’s art centre, and also donations of works from private collections, and from people who have worked in Maningrida dating back to its inception as a trading post in the 1940s. Djómi is an official regional museum of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
