The Katherine Outback Heritage Museum was originally constructed as an air terminal for the region during World War II, and now contains an eclectic collection of artifacts, photographs, maps and pioneer memorabilia in an informative museum. As well as Aboriginal artifacts from the region, the museum houses photographs, furniture, home wares and tools ranging in date from the late-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. Outdoor and undercover exhibits illustrate a rich heritage of ingenuity in rural machinery and household equipment.
