Explore the new MONA in Hobart

Shared by

The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart has been identified as one of the island state's best undiscovered gems by the Sydney Morning Herald's Winsor Dobbin.

MONA – a $175 million facility in the heart of the Tasmanian capital city – has extended its opening exhibition so visitors can see the attraction which stunned the museum’s first 200,000 visitors.

That exhibit – Monaism – has been designed to be a permanent fixture at the facility, with pieces added to and removed from the collection over time.

Other upcoming exhibitions at MONA include ‘Experimenta Utopia Now’ – which will run from August 5 until October 3 and feature works from new media artists from Australia and around the world – as well as an exhibition of works from Belgian artist Wim Delvoye that is set to take place between December 10 and March 27 next year.

Visitors to Hobart will find that there are a number of different ways to get to MONA – although with limited parking, you may be better off considering your options when it comes to public transportation.

You can travel by ferry to MONA from the Brooke St pier, or you can hire a bike to make your way to the museum, or instead choose to travel by bus or taxi.
