    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.

    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).

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Very cool use of technology - register your email on the O Guide and before you are back home to sleep MONA sends you links to what you saw+clicked on - fabulous memories, follow-up

    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.

    Awesome, world class gallery. Go on a Saturday morning while the rest of the tourists are at Salamanca. Also do the Moo Brew beer & Moorilla wine tastings

    We visited between major exhibitions. The permanent collection, spaces and environments still left me with a sense of WOW.

    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!

    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
  • Rory D.
    The food is really good and the ferry going over is very trendy... Most exhibits are suitable for kids... Some very original ideas

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

    Get a spot on the lawn overlooking the Derwent and try the bacon & caramelised onion open sandwich and a Moo Brew pale ale

    Start at the bottom and work your way up. The bar on the bottom floor make great martinis, so start your day with a cocktail

    Amazingly well done. Even if you only have a few hours - make the trip. Reminds me of LA's Getty in terms of scenery.

    Grab your O guide - click through for every art piece and hit Gonzo to share the wonderful passions, intellect+honesty of founder David Walsh..then read the straight text

    The museum has a lot of weird exhibits, but it's a very interesting place! Not your standard art gallery.

    Always sweet to see the cats of owner David Walsh as if to welcome you at the top of the stairs out it in the sun.

    World Class. Certainly a cut above. Immerse yourself for an entire day (easily done) and then stay the night at the Pavillions.

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

    The Thai Mi cocktail in the void bar is fantastic. Chilli, ginger... Mmm what's not to like?!

    Scope out what you want to see. It's large and takes a whole to get around. Leave a couple of hours minimum

    Run don't walk to see one of the art world's real highlights. And be prepared to be challenged, used and entertained. Kudos to MONA and DW.

    Definitely worth the trip. Plan to spend at least a few hours if you want the full experience!

    MONA, designed by Fender Katsalidis Architects, is a subterranean temple to ‘spirituality without the undercurrent of belief’ – a building where nothing, it seems, is simple. Read more

    Spanish BBQ on Fri, Sat and Sun is a must! $18 for good meats and Salad

    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.

    Grab a drink and food and hit a beanbag in the sun at the ground floor cafe, great view!

    it's quieter later in the day, so go straight to the bar and drink cocktails before embarking on your crazy art journey.

    Avoid public holiday to visit as it will be crowded by locals. Tasmanians enter free.
