Introducing The Collection, a podcast that takes you back of house at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. Step inside the dry stores, lift the lid on strange specimen jars and peek inside the deep freeze as we reveal a world of fascinating objects and the stories behind them. MAGNT’s Curator of Territory History, Jared Archibald, says that “Museums collect objects, and objects tell stories”, and there’s no shortage of stories at MAGNT. Illegal hauls on the high seas, near misses during Cyclone Tracy and the accidental discovery of a strange new species are just some of the stories we unearth in this first season.

In the spirit of reconciliation we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters, and communities.
We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders - past, present, and emerging.
Sovereignty was never ceded.
