    rubbish,the NT has gone too pc and on the visit one gets the impression it was a third rate hotel.No mention of the despicable and horrific things that went on,no mention of transporting kids to Australia for trying to get out,its made to look like a decent charity org.Apart from empty walls there was nothing to see apart fro a 1977 kitchen mock up containing things that d had long gone,eg park drive cigarettes,dont think so,i wouyld not visit free,no concessions the price being a tenner,out in 10 minutes
