Art Galleries in Tasmania
Tasmania is home to one of the most controversial art collections in the world.
In Hobart, the Museum of Old and New Art - MONA is a modern art gallery and museum described by its owner as an adult Disneyland. MONA attracts visitors from across the globe with its regular exhibitions of cultural treasures and provocative contemporary art.
Less confronting are the many other museums and regional art galleries showcasing the art of Tasmanian artists and designers. These include the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston.
There's also a range of smaller public and commercial galleries across the state that present all kinds of art and design in exhibition programs and displays. Many shops, cafes and restaurants also showcase the work of local artists, so it's not hard to find interesting locally-made artworks and objects to take home as the perfect souvenir of your visit.
