Mona is open four days a week. Fridays to Mondays, 10am–5pm.
If you want to visit Mona, you’ll need a ticket. Pre-booking is a must.
Please note: Mona is cashless. This includes all tickets, restaurants and bars. Bring your card.
It’s still free to get in. 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 $10 and a lifetime of shame.
The deposit is $10, adults and concession only—you can book timed museum entry or wildcard. For wildcards: join the queue on the O when you get here, and we’ll let you know when you can enter the museum.
No deposit for under 18s, but you will still need to book a timed or wildcard ticket.
After your visit, you will receive an email wherein you can choose to have your $10 refunded, or leave it with Daddy Walsh and he’ll pop it straight on the doggies.
For everyone else, museum entry is $30 for adults and $27 concession.
You can book timed museum entry or a wildcard. For wildcards: join the queue on the O when you get here, and we’ll let you know when you can enter the museum.
Under 18s are free, but will still need to book a timed or wildcard ticket.
Free for everyone, but you’ll still need to book. Art on the lawns and museum plaza, plus outdoor eating and drinking, plus live music daily throughout January. Plus plus. Does not include museum entry.
Our high-speed catamarans sail between Hobart’s Brooke Street Pier and Mona often, and take around twenty-five minutes one way. Please phone Ticket Support if you’d like to make a booking for a passenger under four.

The O is a device that provides information about the artworks on display, and performs a suite of other functions and services, too. Usually O devices are distributed to visitors upon entry but we can’t do this at the moment, for obvious, pandemic-themed reasons. Please download the app to your iPhone (available for Android mid-December), and bring your own headphones, too.
The O supports VoiceOver and screen reader functionality for people who are blind, have low vision, or are dyslexic.
Most of Mona is accessible, except for the Pausiris chamber, certain artworks (Unseen Seen, The Divine Comedy) and parts of the Round House. Motorised wheelchairs are welcome. If you would like to borrow a wheelchair, see staff at the museum entrance. Please note that wheelchairs are limited and cannot be reserved.
Accessible parking is available; head up the driveway and turn left. Look for the signs.
Please phone Ticket Support before visiting if you have specific requirements or would like to discuss transport options.
