Located on the shores of the Derwent River approximately 10 kilometres upstream from the city of Hobart, MONA houses a collection that ranges from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world’s most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art.
The MONA building’s subterranean design and the owner’s unconventional and challenging curatorial approach make it a must-see for any visitor to Tasmania.
MONA takes a different approach to interpretation – there are no labels or wall texts. Individual touch-screen devices sensitive to their location in the museum – show visitors the 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’.
MONA opens daily except Tuesday.

BIENNALE OF MOVING IMAGES (January 17 – July 6, 2015
Eighteen new works representing the next generation of emerging video artists, as selected by world-renowned artistic directors Andrea Bellini, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Yann Chateigné. Fresh from Geneva, the Biennale is stopping by Mona on a round-the-world tour that will continue on to Shanghai, Paris and Venice.
Access to MONA includes a fast catamaran service from the Hobart waterfront or MONA-ROMA mini-bus transport. It is otherwise a 20 minute drive from the city.
Our personal recommendation would be to enjoy the water borne option….takes less than 30 minutes and you can enjoy a drink or two either way. Moo Brew or wine options galore!
