'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.'

Always Love the Museum, they offer a variety of different viewing pleasures. Ranging from, Animal, Historic, Boats (though it is very hot in there so be prepared 😂) all kinds of beautiful art. The gift shop is a little pricey, but has some pretty cool stuff in there and the staff are always so lovely Haven't been to the little food place in there yet. To get into the museum itself is free, you can't take backpacks in anymore they have lockers to out them in which requires a $2 coin you get back when you leave. I have always loved this museum. There's a cyclone Tracy part of the museum which tells you about the events of that tragic day... Which I've always been fascinated by. Sweetheart is still there which was good to know. It's got some nice views from sections too! All in all a great place to take the kids because it's FREE & educational ♥️
Well worth taking a look. Cyclone Tracy display is excellent. And its all free
A bit out of city but can get quite close on number 4 bus. Quite small but is very well laid out. Very helpful staff and well worth a visit.
Very well done displays with interesting informations. Different topics, like aboriginal art, animals, cyclone story of Darwin, as well as history of the northern territory and different boats. There are nice and clean toilets upstairs as well as downstairs. There is a gift shop too and an information shelter. Everything is for free which makes it an absolute must see in Darwin! Great!
Is excellent! Really good natural history combined with history of NT that puts so much in context. Maybe you could also think about a gallery for 'Darwin Today'?
