MONA: Museum of Old and New Art

The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), which opened in 2011, is one of Hobart’s most popular attractions. This edgy private collection of modern art and antiquities is kept underground and features interactive interpretation via portable touch screen gadgets.

The exhibition is described as a “subversive adult Disneyland,” with installations ranging from an Egyptian coffin to a contraption that converts meals into brown slime.

A trendy restaurant, entertainment venues, a library, theatre, and contemporary accommodations are among the many amenities available.

The best method to get to the museum is to take a high-speed ferry from Hobart’s waterfront; the 30-minute ride up the Derwent River will take you right up to the museum’s stairs.
