Museum of Old and New Art – Hobart, Tasmania

Museum of Old and New Art – MONA opened in Hobart in January 2011. It houses a collection that ranges from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world’s most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art. The building’s subterranean design and the owner’s unconventional and challenging curatorial approach make it a must-see for any visitor to Australia.
MONA takes a different approach to interpretation: there are no labels or wall texts. Instead, visitors are given a touch-screen device, which is sensitive to their location in the museum – showing them works in their proximity.


Called the ‘O’, it allows visitors to select the level of information they need and to vote for works they ‘hate’ or ‘love’.

Itinerary options include a MONA fast catamaran service from the Hobart waterfront or MONA-ROMA mini-bus transport; day and night packages with indulgence, wine and food experiences available.
MONA is on the River Derwent, just 15 minutes’ drive north of Hobart, Tasmania.
