With a USP that promises to ‘shock and offend’, the Museum of Old and New Art otherwise called the MONA is Australia’s biggest privately owned museum. David Walsh wanted to put up his entire collection of fine art up for public display and cost him a grand total of $57 million. The MONA features a wide spectrum of art from ancient Africa and Greece to the more contemporary Australian, British and Australian. If you’re visiting with children or are sensitive to sexual art, it’s advisable to purchase a map before you being your tour so you’ll know what sections of the MONA to avoid.

This place is unique. The ambience is very interesting and different. There is a touch of genius here that has lured visitors from all over the world and put Hobart on the map. It's worth going for the amazing architecture alone. You should not miss this if you love art presented differently. Read David Walsh's story. Very cool!
The lay out could be better to ensure guests get to see everything available. A wide variety of modern art is on display (regardless of taste) was inspiring none the less. The boat trip over is the favourable way to get to the museum and has been purposely set up this way (in other words don’t bother driving as you may not enjoy the experience as much) very smart business by the curators.
One of the best museums I have been to. The building itself is an artwork and worth seeing in itself. The artwork has been carefully selected and the building is like an underground maze, you never know what's around the next corner!
Absolutely amazing (depending on your age). Parking can be an issue sometimes but I’d recommend taking the ferry for the “complete” experience. Love the layout and the concept that I witnessed. Will go back again.
Great restaurants with a variety of choices. Good food wines and beer. Great "different" exhibitions. Be prepared to spend some time to see it all. Extremely well run by Mona staff. There are several levels and all are accessible by lift.
