MONA, Hobart, TAS

Museum of Old and New Art is a major attraction in Hobart. We enjoyed the displays especially the sound, light and visual effects works.  The building itself is pretty amazing too.

There is no signage in the exhibitions, everything is on an Apple device – The O – that uses gps to locate the nearby artwork.  Make sure you return the device at the end of your visit or they will kill you. REALLY! it says so in the visitor information.
Check out the views and exhibits before entering.
Here are some of our fav exhibits…
Although the museum can easily be accessed by road the recommended method is via the ferry from downtown Hobart for the harbour views of the city and approach to MONA.  This is great if you can find a city carpark for the day, which is especially hard for a RV.  We decided to park at MONA early in the morning. There is limited parking so get in first, 9:30am is best as they open at 10am. The best park for RVs is -42.809900,147.261158  and its free. View the galleries, then take the ferry to explore downtown for an hour or two, then return on the ferry.
And just a point to remember, generally the museum is closed on Tuesdays.
And more on the art theme, a local county has a scare crow competition running, here are some road side scares…
