Music at Mona

Let local and interstate musical talent entertain you while you're scoffing your lunch on the lawns.

Any time we’re open, we’ll have music outside—in Warren Mason’s Tin Camp Studio, or near the lawns somewhere if the weather is grim. Inside, don't miss musicians-in-residence Colin Offord and Danny Healy performing live in their museum studios each day.
