About MONA Pavilions
MONA has eight pavilions –each with one or two bedrooms –on the banks of the River Derwent. The older four are named after influential Australian artists and feature artwork by their namesakes;the newer take their names from renowned Australian architects. Three of the pavilions are translucent glass and steel cubes that appear suspended on their apex and one is a diamond-shaped three storey building enclosed in a silver metallic skin. Each has its own character, with unique art pieces and furnishings, including Arfl ex Marenco sofas, B&B Italia UP1 'doughnut' chairs, Zanotta wire coffee tables, and bespoke furniture by some of Tasmania's top designers.
All pavilions have access to an enclosed heated lap-pool, sauna and gym. The museum is on your doorstep, and there is also a microbrewery, library, bookshop, several drinking and dining options, a cinema and a winery on site. The museum's restaurant, The Source, serves French-inspired cuisine between Wednesday and Saturday, with room service offered on other days.
