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.

There are many constructions around the museum, no sign instruction made us so confused to find the way to museum. Front desk was so rude, it made us feel like they doing this only for money. It completely ruined half of our day.

The building is an interesting and engaging space, the exhibits were variously fun like the word waterfall, macabre - the diarama of the stuffed kittens tea party, and gratuitous - casts of 77 women's vaginas (not what they refer to them as). The core ten...More

If you are anywhere near Hobart I'd highly recommend this museum. The collection and installations are fantastic. I usually time out at about 2 hours in an art museum but I happily enjoyed this one for 6.

Look, everybody knows that modern art is terrible and pointless but if you pack a whole lot of it down a deep hole with as much craziness as you can find then you're in for a bizarre experience. We went in order to have a...More

MONA is worth the hype. Impressive contemporary art within inspiring architecture. Take the Posh-Pit Ferry to enjoy the full experience. MONA will be known as one of Australia’s greatest experiences.

We visited MONA as part of an organised dinner. The dinner itself and location were wonderful. The architecture of the building is great too. In fairness I’ve never really had a strong appreciation for art, and MONA kind of reinforced that. I found it really...More
