Museum of Old and New Art – Mona
The Museum of Old and New Art – Mona is Australia's largest private museum and arguably one of the most controversial private collections of modern art and antiquities in the world. Described by its owner as a 'subversive adult Disneyland', the collection ranges from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world's most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art.
With around 300 art works on display, the collection takes up three floors within a subterranean architectural masterpiece and is guaranteed to impress.
The 3.5 ha site includes the Ether Building Function Centre, Moorilla winery and vineyard, Cellar Door, Wine Bar and Barrel Room, Void Bar, The Source restaurant, a 63-seat cinema, the Mona Library and gallery and eight contemporary accommodation pavilions.
Visitors can also 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 six days a week, closed Tuesdays.
