Mona – museum of Old and New Art

Updated: Jan 20, 2018

It's hard to be in Hobart and not hear about Mona. This art gallery is like nothing I've ever seen before. From the outside it doesn't look like much but when entering you'll find some impressive rooms hidden within the sandstone rock. And it's packed with art!

I was so happy when I found three watercolour drawings by my favourite Hilma af Klint.

There was this eerie room filled with smelly oil but also a more positive room that looked like something from a sci-fi movie.

An impressive (and huge!) lead piece by Anselm Kiefer.

A Porsche stung by a bee?

The beautiful Void bar.

Maybe one of the more famous installations in the gallery. Cloaca Professional is basically a machine-made poop machine. I can guarantee the smell is there too.
