Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory


Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory

Set in a tropical garden on Darwin Harbour at Bullocky Point is the Northern Territorys premier cultural institution - the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT).

The MAGNT collections place the regions art, history and culture, and natural history in an Australian and international context through research, interpretation and collection development.

These collections encompass Aboriginal art and material culture, visual arts, craft, Southeast Asian and Oceanic art and material culture, maritime archaeology, Northern Territory history and natural sciences.

The MAGNT complex consists of five major permanent galleries, a touring gallery, educational facilities for school groups, a theatre, the Museum Shop and the Cornucopia Museum Cafe. All contribute to providing an entertaining, diverse and educational experience for the local community and visitors to Darwin.

A prominent event on the MAGNT exhibition program is the annual Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award. Established in 1984 by the MAGNT specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, the Award sponsored by Telstra attracts entries from the NT and interstate and is renowned for presenting diversity and innovation in contemporary Aboriginal art.

The MAGNT also presents a yearly exhibition program and tours exhibitions within the NT, nationally and internationally. This comprehensive program is developed by incorporating touring exhibitions from other museums and art galleries as well as MAGNT initiated exhibitions, which from time to time feature Territory artists.
