Stepping into a world of art in Hobart

A silver grotto studded with gaudy glass tubes, the digestive system brought to life and a dark rectangular room punctuated by sharp sounds and strobe lights are some of the things waiting for you at MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art. Jessica Cornish spends a day exploring the quirky museum located just outside of Hobart and learns a few things along the way. Picture: MONA Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart, Tasmania

PERCHED high above the River Derwent and enveloped by manicured green lawns and a miniature vineyard, you will find the quirky and wonderful Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).
