MONA Museum of Old and New Art opened in January 2011 on the River Derwent just north of Hobart. It houses a diverse collection that ranges from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world's most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art. At a cost of $US72 million, the building's subterranean design and the owner's unconventional and challenging curatorial approach make it a must-see for any visitor to Australia. The collection is currently valued at $US96 million. MONA is the only Australian experience that offers visitors a vineyard setting within a 15-minute drive of an Australian capital city, on-site accommodation, world-class fine dining, cellar door tastings, micro-brewery tours, heated pool, sauna and gymnasium, an all-year events program and an internationally significant museum with a café and museum shop. It also offers travellers a new reason to visit Tasmania.
