Looking at art used to be boring. It still is, maybe, but at least here at Mona, the Museum of Old and New Art, you can get drunk and/or rage against the machine. Located just up the river from Hobart (Tasmania's southern capital), Mona's...more

Spend a good couple of hours wandering the beautifully displayed modern, old and ancient works all located underground. Something for everyone. Some to appreciate some to shock. Gift shop also on site. Outside gardens and displays a must to also wander thru. Liscenced bar with...More

Most people have said it all and expressed very personal views about Mona based on personal peccadilloes. After all, is an emotive experience. What more can a reviewer add? I'd recommend it to anyone (amongst the many millions) who thinks modern art is questionable. One...More

Ok firstly we love art galleries and always visit whenever in new places and cities, some we’ve been back to twice. And we were so looking forward to this. But MONA is nothing other than an arty circle jerk of hard rubbish all placed in...More

Always brilliant, eye opening, funny, confusing, mind blowing....if you are not into the art then the building and situation is worth a visit alone!

I went it with fairly low expectations, and was happily surprised. The place was intimidating (I'm an introvert and went on my own) and they possibly hired all of the cool people in Hobart to work there? But a few of those exibits were so...More

We spent three hours wondering through the exhibits and where fascinated by the depth and quality. This is a must go to place for those who love creativity or something different

Apart from the fact that this museum is INSANELY crazy/interesting/unique/amazing, I would like to thank the hotel team for going OUT OF THEIR WAY to help me jump start my car battery that had died on a Sunday at 5pm when maintenance had gone home!...More

Just go there. Easily spend the whole day. Do the Moorilla wine tour too. Get the posh pit ferry. Spoil yourself. The best thing you can do in your life. Brilliant art and architecture. And food and wine and beer. What’s not to like?

An eclectic art collection, which will not appeal to everyone's taste and definitely not to younger children. We liked the fact that there are no labels on the exhibits, allowing visitors to form their own opinions or take the self guided audio tour.

This was the worst overpriced experience. It is advertised as a museum but little more than pornography from twisted minds. Complete waste of money.

I would recommend a minimum of three hours but up to 5 or longer if you intend to dine or take in outdoor entertainment
