Wow. Never seen anything like it. Not your usual stuffy museum. Something stunning at each turn. Time flew and I wished I had allowed more than the 2.5 hours I allotted. Might even go back tomorrow.

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.

We visited this museum as a family and had a great time. Highly recommended. We had been told that the museum was not suitable for children but our kids - aged 8, 10 and 13 loved it.

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

Amazing art installations, confusing, gaudy, controversial, mindblowing. This museum has it all. Spend a day

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

The series of largely negative artworks displayed in a network of dark tunnels that felt deeply underground quickly gave my wife and me a distinct sense of having descended into hell. If you prefer art that points to a greater beyond through the depiction of...More

Groovy place. All staff we encountered were exceptional. Just so much to absorb. Something for everyone here. Our teens loved the Zero exhibition.

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... More
