Museum of Old and New Art (MONA)

Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art showcases modern and contemporary art alongside antiquities to create a surreal museum experience. 

Opened in January 2011, MONA has quickly become one of Hobart’s top museums. The museum primarily sources its art from the private collection of owner David Walsh. Described as a ‘ghost train for adults,’ MONA is certainly a unique experience. Exhibitions are intense, the experience larger than life. 

Exhibitions in MONA change regularly. Currently on display are three exhibitions ranging from 10 to 3 months in length, as well as the permanent ‘Monaism’ collection – described as an evolving exhibition of the highlights of the collection. Recent and future exhibitions include showcases of world theater, an exploration of Lewis Carroll’s The Red Queen character, and the work of specific artists. Themes, concepts and the work of individuals form powerful exhibitions within the building.

Practical Info

MONA is located on the Berriedale peninsula in Hobart, within the grounds of the Moorilla Winery. There’s limited parking on site, but both buses and ferries leave regularly from the MONA Brooke St Ferry Terminal in Hobart. The ferry takes half an hour and gives impressive views of the peninsula on its approach. Admission is $20 for adults, $15 for concession, and free for under 18s and Tasmanian residents.
