Museum of Old and New Art – Mona
Museum of New and Old Art - Mona is temporarily closed, opening 26 December 2020. For more information please visit the Mona website. www.mona.net.au
The Museum of Old and New Art – Mona is Australia's largest private museum and 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 includes everything 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 a function centre, Moorilla winery and vineyard, a cellar door and wine bar. There's also the Source restaurant, Faro restaurant, Void Bar, a pizza and cocktail bar, a 63-seat cinema, the Mona Library and Gallery and eight stylish accommodation pavilions.
Dubsy’s is slinging burgers on the lawns and there’s live music every operating day, curated by the ex-Violent Femmes bass guitarist and Mona music curator Brian Ritchie and his team.
Visitors can catch a high speed ferry from Hobart's waterfront for a 30-minute ride up the River Derwent right to the steps of the museum.
Mona is open six days a week, closed Tuesdays.
