The Basics

Alongside temporary exhibitions, Mona’s permanent collection (called Monanism) is known for works such as Wim Delvoye's Cloaca Professional, a machine that replicates the human digestive system. Browse the art at your leisure with the aid of the O, a free device available at the museum that lets you read and listen to information about the works on display. Later, unwind at the on-site winery, restaurant, or café—or spend the night on one of the pavilions.

Some sightseeing tours of Hobart include entrance to Mona.
