Looking off of our balcony this morning, it reminds me exactly of the Italian countryside. Apparently, Hobart is the Little Italy of Australia!
Today we visited the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), which is a very popular attraction in Hobart that nearly everyone told us to visit. It might not be for everyone, but I am incredibly happy went! We started by taking a lovely ferry from downtown Hobart up the Derwin River. Upon arrival, it doesn’t look like much, but at the top of the 99 entrance steps and underground lays the art museum with remarkable architecture and creativity.

We explored outside, then entered the museum, looking at and thinking about all the artwork inside. Some was a bit dark or disturbing, but majority of the works were very interesting to view. Our of everyone we’ve met, this gallery gives different people very different views. You either love it, or hate it. Luckily, my mom and I thought it was well worth the visit and a fantastic way to spend our last morning in Hobart. If you’re interested in art and creativity, I highly recommend visiting MONA!
