Museum Of Old And New Art - Review

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.

The Museum of Old and New Art is the biggest museum in Australia that is privately owned and funded. It features a series of surreal art pieces right from ancient Greece and Africa to contemporary art from Europe and Australia.

Museum Of Old And New Art, Hobart Reviews

  • A modern museum/gallery done well. Quite an eclectic mix of old and new artworks in a range of different styles that never felt disjointed or conflicting. Great use of technology in both the installations and the incredibly useful GPS-based iPhone guide. The MONA grounds are also gorgeous. Catch the ferry in - a beautiful journey up the river - and make sure you spend some time walking around after your museum visit.

  • A mind blowing experience from start to finish. The architecture alone creates an environment you won’t see anywhere else in the world. Each exhibit presents itself in a unique way that creates its own unique moment. Wish it was closer and wish more museums followed their lead. Highly recommend eating lunch at The Source. One of the best meals we had in Australia.

  • Interesting! Depending on your vision of modern art you either take it or leave it. Some was interesting other parts less desirable. The older Egyptian works were interesting and well presented amongst the modern. Worth the look but like any art its all in the eye of the beholder.

  • What a great attraction for Tasmania. The building itself was spectacular and the banter on signs and information points was hilarious!! I loved the old art more than the new but that all was appreciated! It would have been good if there was some parenting facilities as we had a infant on board and it was difficult to feed and change her

  • One of the best galleries I’ve ever been to. No labels, and a very well organized AV guide. Doesn’t take itself too seriously but also, if you want, contains interviews with artists and context that’s really useful. Some really touching and thoughtful pieces are here. It avoids the old tropes or lots of galleries and is short enough that you could have a great experience in a morning or an afternoon. The ferry ride over is charming as well, I’d recommend. Great views of Hobart. The cafe isn’t over priced for what you get and there are chickens. What more could you want?
