Down the river from Hobart, Tasmania, the Museum of Old and New Art is Australia’s largest privately funded museum. From street level MONA’s single-story building appears consumed by its surroundings, but visitors entering the museum find a spiral staircase leading down to three floors of display space carved into the cliffs of the Berriedale Peninsula. Its collection of bold contemporary art, with a heavy focus on large-scale installation work responsive to MONA’s unique gallery spaces, numbers over 1,900 objects, including 400 works from its founder David Walsh’s private collection. In keeping with its unique artistic philosophy, MONA offers a visitor experience that includes bars, two annual music and art festivals, guest accommodation, and an off-site brewery.
