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, contemporary art, maritime archaeology, Northern Territory history and natural sciences. The MAGNT complex consists of three major permanent galleries, four temporary exhibitions spaces, a Discovery Centre with hands on children's activities, a theatre, and the Museum Shop. All contribute to providing an entertaining, diverse and educational experience for the local community and visitors to Darwin.
