Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory is the Northern Territory’s premier cultural organization. Located on Larrakia Land at Bullocky Point in Darwin, since 1981, the museum is 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 traveling 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 Center in Alice Springs, and the Alcoota Fossil Bed site northeast of Alice Springs. We manage the historic Lyons Cottage on Darwin’s Esplanade and the Defence of Darwin Experience at East Point in Darwin.

Among the many Historical Objects & Exhibits of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, the following are some highlights:

  • Photographs of Aboriginal Rock Art
