    Not suitable for kids even during busy holiday periods. The staff are on high alert and jump on them at the slightest chance. Still, it's interesting, quirky and a Hobart check list item.

    Excellent place! The building and grounds alone are so interesting and then, there's the art. A must see in Hobart.

    Entrance free for the last opening hour, 5pm, onwards. But that surely isn't enough for you to finish even half of the museum.

    The cafe runs out of many hot dishes early. Get there before 1 or your options may be limited. Don't miss the cellar door which closes at 5.

    Book everything online well in advance. Because queues, queues and then after that queues. Did I mention queues? Much worse on a rainy day. Otherwise fantastic place

    it's ok. nice architecture and interior design, but the exhibits are a little lacking in content. some are very uninspiring. the iPod they hand out and the corresponding app are first class!

    Get there early. Go to death exhibition first to avoid queues. Enjoy lunch in one of several choices. During summer festivals, pop up food stands etc make this place come alive!

    It's a must if you are visiting Hobart, even if only for a few days. The catamaran ride from the docks was fun and the staff on site are helpful and friendly.

    Noisy, tedious and wanky. But still a great way to spend a day -- and still shits over most other modern "art" museums.

    Tasmania owes MONA a huge debt. A visitor must. Eat in its wine/bar restaurant too. Fresh local ingredients and Tasmanian wine, beer and cider. Reasonably priced.

    Interesting but also a tad underwhelming after all the reviews from others. Not exactly the Guggenheim and not much better than GOMA in Brisbane. Still a worthwhile experience.

    If you don't want to spend 20$ for Mona boat or bus transfer to the museum, look for the public bus by Metro: http://www.metrotas.com.au/timetables/index/1 However, boat trip is worth the pay.
