When I was visiting my sister in Hobart this Christmas I visited Mona, the art gallery that is drawing people from all over the world to Tasmania. I had actually visited Mona three years before while it was being constructed as the firm my brother-in-law works for is behind the striking concrete building.
To get to the gallery you can go by ferry, crossing the water before climbing the 99 steps at the back of the building only to descend immediately into the cavernous building. It has to be one of the most engaging museum experience I've experienced. On arrival everyone gets a digital guide - adapted iPhones - called the O. There is no information on the walls, instead your O can track where you are in the museum and bring up information about the near by art works. As well as a brief description, you can listen to interviews with the artist, commentary from David Walshe (Mona's creator) or pieces of music to accompany the work. On leaving there is the option to be emailed your tour route, which documents for you each art work that you looked up whilst walking round the galleries.
