MONA is a very different museum - but well worth seeing, as it will expand your horizons! The ferry trip up the Derwent was a great way to add to sightseeing to your experience. Make sure you have pre-purchased both ferry ticket and MONA entry,...More

Awesome restaurant and special thanks to the most attentive waitress Meg. You are a superstar 💖. Great menu which changes frequently. A wonderful space in which to dine. A place to keep going back to.

We found the layout of the museum difficult to find our way around and disorientating. Very dark inside with no natural light and a bit maze like. Insufficient toilets. Most of the art works were lost on us. Not sure what made many of them...More

MONA was both an Unbelievable building with Unbelievable Art. Whilst maybe not everybody's cup of tea, we found it as good as the MET in New York. Not to be missed if you are in Hobart.

Spent time with the latest exhibition, and although perfectly professional in every way, I missed the funky wild and almost theatrical presentations from the past. Mind you if minimal art is your thing then vast white rooms with installations and videos will give you satisfaction...More
