About Museum And Art Gallery Of The Northern Territory, Darwin

'The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) is the Northern Territory’s premier cultural organisation.

Our principal facility since 1981 is on Larrakia Land at Bullocky Point in Darwin, set in a scenic location overlooking the Arafura Sea. MAGNT is home to internationally renowned artistic, cultural and scientific collections and research programs.

Each year MAGNT presents a dynamic program of internally-developed exhibitions, carefully curated from the collection, and the best travelling exhibitions from around Australia. It is also the home of the annual Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards - the most significant celebration of its kind in Australia.

MAGNT also operates the historic Fannie Bay Gaol in Darwin, the Museum of Central Australia incorporating the Strehlow Research Centre in Alice Springs, and the Alcoota Fossil Bed site north east of Alice Springs. We manage the historic Lyons Cottage on Darwin’s Esplanade and the Defence of Darwin Experience at East Point in Darwin.'

Museum And Art Gallery Of The Northern Territory, Darwin Reviews

Google+
  • A place to definitely visit while in Darwin. Admittance is free unless there is a visiting exhibition. They have good displays relating to the flora and fauna of the Territory as well as its social history and the early exploration from Indonesia. During school holidays at various times they have sessions for children on the museum and touch and feel. Mainly on a Sunday there are talks in the theatrette. Their restaurant has received favourable reviews.

  • This was a great insight into Darwin's history, specially cyclone Tracy. The Tracy exhibit is one of the best I've seen, audio, video and lots of historical artifacts. Big display of Sweetheart too, although I'm not sure if its the real croc but its still pretty cool. Lots of native art and a theater with interviews from community leaders. Food court is closed till Feb 2018. Entry is free There was a bloke making crepe outside

  • Not bad for a small city. Cyclone Tracy and bombing of Darwin exhibitions were good. Free entry, well gold coin donation. No eating options when we were there, however, Darwin Ski club was a short walk.

  • Awesome, it's free and a very welcome break after a hot stroll in the sun (air-conditioned ohwyeah!, pretty cold even).

  • Decent place, free entry was a plus. But maybe I read really quickly because I was through in 30-40 minutes. There also seemed to only be one art gallery open (on Indigenous Australian paintings which really started to blur together in their similarity). Finally they may have recently replaced the floor in the gallery because there was a really really strong plastic/rubber smell in that room
