    Allocate at least a couple of hours to browse through the galleries, as well as the outdoor pieces. Love the O app on the iPod that is provided during the visit. It's a beautiful museum.

    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!

    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.

    Amazing museum with not your ordinary art pieces. Take the MONA ROMA ferry from Brooke Street Pier to the gallery for a lovely day out on the water.

    Amazing place. I could not recommend this place enough. Ferry ride in is part of the experience but plenty of parking available if needed. Changing all the time. Nudity and other adult themes.

    Incredible museum (this is coming from a NY-er). Don't check it out if you're easily offended (overheard many parent age people saying they were a little put off by some of the sexxxxier things).

    2 options for dining: A very good wine and beer tasting bar and cafe. And Source restaurant. If you're there, there was a coffee float with lemongrass anglaise. Order if possible

    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.

    Well worth the time and money. Spend at least a day there & don't miss the self guided tour..."like" your favorites and they'll send you an email so you can follow up after your visit and relive it.

    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.

    Don't miss listening to the harmonics of the metal "fence" outdoors around the edge of the tennis court. The winds from the Derwent make extraordinary music.

    Experiential art at it's best. A fabulous mix of installation and visual art. Must see if in Hobart.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Ignore the advice - start on B1 and go straight to the mummy room, only 2 people at a time, big queues as the day unfolds..lots of contemplative spaces on B1, makes B3 feel like a dance party!
