We had a great day at MONA with ten year old girls. The ferry ride was smooth on the upper deck. We spent about 3 hours there. Some of the exhibits are not suitable for kids but you receive a warning via the hand held...More
Complete and utter rubbish - not a single redeeming factor. On the upside - no, sorry getting carried away there - no upside. Third time I've tried to write this review, it seems the system does not like critics.
A really unusual art museum near Hobart. You can drive there and there is free parking, or take a ferry from Hobart centre. Entry is $A28. Be prepared for the unusual and many explicit sexual art items including many casts along a wall of ladies...More
Incredible space. Have heard a lot about it over the years and finally got my chance! From the prompt, comfortable and stylish ferry ride (on the Roma) to entry and the myriad galleries and exhibitions, the experience was an absolute delight. So much so that...More
Drove from Hobart, poorly signposted but that might be the council problem. Building and location is great and the iced coffee in the cafe is the best. But, that is the only good things I can say about MONA. It is a self indulgent exhibition...More

Personally I wouldn’t take my children if they were this age. Some of the art is disturbing and not suitable for such an impressionable age. The ‘Museum of Everything’ is fantastic as one mentioned, however you need to use the headphones and listen to the narrative to fully understand what you’re looking at, and when it takes 2 1/2 hours to venture through this properly, is an 8 year old going to do this? There are some exhibits that are still on my mind some 6 years after seeing them, search ‘The Painter’ by Paul McCarthy. Perhaps walk through yourself prior to taking the kids in, bottom line is that you know what they can handle better than anyone, enjoy it, Paul
