The Education staff at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory provide educational services for schools, teachers and the general public. The educational aims of MAGNT provide a vital bridge that links the collection and the public.
The Discovery Centre provides students and visitors with varied interactive displays, family activities and resources, complementing the museum's exhibition program. The Discovery Centre can be used as part of a school visit for hands-on learning.
The Discovery Centre is open from 9am to 4:30pm Monday – Friday and 10am to 4:30pm weekends and public holidays.
The Education Unit produces classroom resources for MAGNT's temporary and permanent exhibition program and Discovery Centre's displays. Teacher floor talks by curators are held at the beginning of each new exhibition providing educators with valuable insight into exhibitions and ideas for planning excursions.
Teacher Floor Talks and Senior Study Days are regularly planned throughout the year. MAGNT is very proud of our Education Volunteers as they provide a vital bridge for the museum's collection and the public.
All our volunteers have gone through an extensive training course and are highly skilled, knowledgeable and motivated. Volunteers are available to guide visiting groups through the museum when booking your excursion.
