Overview
More
Mona - the Museum of Old and New Art - is Australia's largest privately owned museum. It showcases owner David Walsh's collection, which includes more than 2000 artworks, antiquities and ethnographic pieces. The collection ranges from Egyptian funerary objects to some of the world's most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art. Since opening in January 2011 it has welcomed more than 1.4 Million visitors. The 3.5 Ha site, just north of Hobart, also includes the Ether Building Function Centre, Moorilla winery and vineyard, Cellar Door, Wine Bar and Barrel Room, Void Bar, The Source Restaurant, a 63-seat cinema, the Mona Library and gallery, as well as eight contemporary accommodation pavilions. Until 6 July, 2015, Biennale of Moving Images Hobart, 2015 - 18 new works by 20 of the world's best video artists under 40 years of age. Amarna (2015) by James Turrell (born 1946 in Los Angeles, USA)- Amarna is one of a series of more than 80 Skyspace installations Turrell has built in high altitude and geographically isolated locations. MONA's work is the largest Skyspace to date and Turrell's southern-most installation. See MONA website for sequence times. 12 -22 June, 2015, Dark Mofo Since Neolithic times, seasonal winter solstice rites have been held to face the darkness and bring back the light. Mona - the Museum of Old and New Art - in Tasmania's winter festival Dark Mofo celebrates both ancient and contemporary mythologies, birth and death, fire and laser light - with some good music, art and food thrown in. The usual Mona obsessions, with a darker twist, in and around Hobart each June. MONA FOMA A summer festival of eclectic proportions: the Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art in Tasmania, Australia, is curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes) and brings a beguiling mixed-bag of music and art to the island state. From post-punk to avant-garde orchestras, inflatables, installations and performance art, MOFO sprawls unconventionally across Hobart each January. Mona is open Wednesday - Monday (closed Tuesdays) and operates from 10am - 5pm in winter, and 10am - 6pm throughout summer. Mona is currently on the winter operating hour schedule.

We love MONA so we were back again to see the new exhibition 'The Museum of Everything' Loved the concept and the exhibition itself was excellent. This is where MONA comes into its own with the O system. Nothing physically documented but available on an...More

I am not a big museum fan, with some exceptions. However, I found MONA very interesting. The art was very different that the usual museum. It was very eclectic, very bright and very unusual. One interesting aspect is that the exhibits have no signage. Instead,...More

I liked it. Go with an open mind. Some people say it's not good for children - it might provoke some questions, but my daughter enjoyed the lot.

$25 for a 'concession' admission? A $3 discount to full price. That was the first insult. No signage was the second. I liked the building itself and the word waterfall. And that was it. The spouse is a very open minded fellow and he suggested...More

I'm going to keep this review short and simple. It seems to me the person who created this place lacked culture and tried to buy some with 70 million dollars and failed miserably. With all that money, they couldn't even stock latte flavours in the...More

I'm not really an art gallery type, but there was enough context/history to make it worthwhile for me. The accompanying audio works a treat, and definitely enhances the experience

We had heard a bit about the eccentric owner of the MONA and the museum didn't disappoint in that respect. As psychiatric nurses, we ended up diagnosing rather than admiring many of the exhibits. The location is great and the building is impressive. Not sure...More

Hello. You would be able to walk through the whole gallery, while stopping around a few things of interest in 90 minutes. It depends on a few things such as attendance. If there are a lot of people, some walkways create... More
