Museum And Art Gallery Of The Northern Territory - Review
'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
Fantastic wildlife display, cyclone Tracey area and some great artwork. Cafe leaves a lot to be desired, but their outdoor dining area is excellent. The cafe may have just changed hands, and they were setting up an art exhibition the day we went so that aspect will improve too.
The art gallery contained many outstanding displays all of which were well explained and visually pleasing. The museum had very interesting exhibits on the animals of the area and of the effects on Darwin of cyclone Tracey. Definitely recommend it.
I didn't get to see everything. My focus was on Cyclone Tracey. There were replicas of the way homes looked at the time the storm hit. There was an opportunity to experience the lack of visibility and loud roaring sound to which people were subjected. There were pictures and explanations of who was involved in dealing with the disaster. I did visit the section on Aboriginal art. I didn't get to view the section on animals and fish. The shop was expensive. Refreshments were limited and expensive. Bring your own. The public bus brings you from town to the front door. If you're a senior and have a seniors card, the trip is free.
Good experience. Cyclone Tracy experience room was very impressive. But this museum is located far from the city center. About 8 mins walking distance from the closest bus stop... It would not be a big deal if Darwin is not a Super hot place
We only had an hour to spare before catching a flight and cannot think of a better place to spend it. Exhibits are so well laid out and informative and staff knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely be back to see the rest.
