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.

Museum Of Old And New Art, Hobart Reviews - Write a Review
What an experience! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Hobart or just generally Australia. We spent time stretching from a Ferry Ride at 11:00 AM until departing at 5:00. It gave us time to walk through in a relaxed format and spend time at the wine bar, which is worth the stop. As it gets built out I would say you could definitely spend the whole afternoon here or even more. It challenges you to wonder about art, wonder about the motives of David Walsh, ponder why you would watch a piece of art actually poop, so many questions.
Brilliantly quirky exhibits, definitely a must- see while in Hobart. However many of the other guests and myself found the audio guide a bit lacking and quickly gave up on listening. If only it were either more concise or engrossing, it may have been more worth listening to.
Had a massively good time here; was at the museum as a part of the MOFO festival. First piece of advice, regardless of when you go to the museum: wear comfortable shoes. This is a labyrinth of a museum and goes on forever, come well equipped and you'll be fine. Has some lovely permanent exhibitions, though my personal favourite was the temporary exhibit, 'On the Origin of Art'. If you're in Hobart go here. It's well worth it.
Visiting Hobart for our wedding anniversary everyone kept telling us to visit Mona! It's a must when in Hobart, Tasmania. Well, I'm glad we did! This place is awe-inspiring, the grand scale of the architecture isn't realised until you arrive and delve into the depths of Mona as it unfolds around you. This isn't your museum, go in open minded and you'll be generously rewarded.
Pretty cool place constantly evolving with new exhibits. The Museum of Everything had an eclectic assortment of art. The food available there is amazing and the wines (go do a $10 wine tasting) are to die for.
