MONA IS OPEN THURSDAYS TO MONDAYS. BOOKINGS ARE A MUST. EVEN IF YOU'RE TASMANIAN.
It's still free to get in to the museum. But there’s a catch. You have to pre-book your trip and pay a deposit; if you show up, you can get your deposit back. We are restricted with numbers so we can’t have people booking and then not showing up. If you do that, the cost is $5 and a lifetime of shame.
The deposit is $5 per person, adults and concession only. No deposit for under 18s (but booking still required). After your visit, you will receive an email wherein you can choose to have your $5 refunded, or leave it with Daddy Walsh and he’ll pop it straight on the doggies.
You can also just visit the Mona grounds, for lawn-lounging, outdoor art, alfresco eating and drinking, and live music. Free entry (no deposit required).
