Where are we going today?

Set in a tropical garden on Darwin Harbour at Bullocky Point is the Northern Territory's premier cultural institution, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT). The MAGNT collections place the region's 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 a cafe.

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