Welcome to the weekend!
You made it through the week and now it's time for some rest and relaxation. Thankfully we have some great things for you to do today that will help you relieve your stress. Today's installment of Dollars & Sense is focusing on the Tasmania commonwealth of Australia. Check it out below!
Visit The MONA
The MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) is often touted as Australia’s largest private art gallery but some may say that the MONA is really an expression of one man’s eccentric genius. Owner David Walsh, a professional gambler, has poured $75 million into this project – a giant concrete and metal edifice on the banks of the Derwent in suburban Berriedale (15 minutes’ drive from central Hobart).
The museum contains 400 works of art, plus a bizarre collection of classical antiquities and pop art installations. MONA is deliberately provocative – Walsh calls it a “subversive adult Disneyland”. The site also contains a winery, two restaurants, a microbrewery and collection of up-market pavilions. Oh, and a tennis court.
