MONA – Museum of Old and New Art

Galleries, Museums and Collections

David Walsh built the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) to house his collection of ancient, modern and contemporary art. Located on the banks of the Derwent a short ferry trip from Hobart, Mona is Australia’s largest private museum with three levels of underground galleries, which visitors explore with custom-built, handheld technology, called the O, that tells them about the artworks on display. Mona is David’s playground and experiment: we need art, he says, but for what?

Mona is also home to two wineries and a brewery, several bars and restaurants, luxury accommodation pavilions, a library, cemetery and tennis court.
