MONA is located on the shores of the Derwent River approximately a 25-minute drive 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’.
Access to MONA includes a fast catamaran service from the Hobart waterfront or MONA-ROMA mini-bus transport. It is otherwise a 25-minute drive from the city.
Our personal recommendation would be to enjoy the water borne option it takes less than 30 minutes and you can enjoy a drink or two either way.
MONA opens daily except Tuesday.
