Museum of Old and New Art – MONA
The Museum of Old and New Art – MONA is arguably one of the most controversial private collections of modern art and antiquities in the world – it's certainly the largest. Located in Hobart, MONA is described by its owner as a 'subversive adult Disneyland'.
In all, the collection takes up three floors within a subterranean architectural masterpiece and is guaranteed to impress. With over 400 art works, the collection includes Sidney Nolan's Snake, Wim Delvoye's Cloaca Professional, a machine that turns food into excrement, and Chris Ofili's The Holy Virgin Mary.
The 3.5 ha site also includes the Ether Building Function Centre, Moorilla winery and vineyard, Cellar Door, Wine Bar and Barrel Room, Void Bar, Moo Brew microbrewery, The Source restaurant, a 63-seat cinema, the Mona Library and gallery and eight contemporary accommodation pavilions.
Visitors can catch a high speed ferry from Hobart's waterfront for a 30-minute ride up the Derwent River right to the steps of the museum.
MONA is open from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm six days per week, closed Tuesdays.
