Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania

As our Australia trip of more than two months ago drew to a close we went to Tasmania. Lots of people had reciommended going there and I certainly make that recommendation.

A one of our first things we did was to go to MONA, Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania, a fascinating experience. Some people apparently call it the Museum of Not Art.

The easiest way to get to it from downtown Hobart was by boat. The boat was amusing with a cow and a bunch of sheep that were actually seats. When we got there there was this marvelous sculpture of a cement mixer outside. Inside our first view showed in interesting architecture and the beginnings a huge range of types of art.
