Music at Mona

Let local musical and artistic talent serenade / subject you to light entertainment while you’re trying to scoff your lunch on the lawns.

If the weather’s nice, the music is on the lawns. If it’s crap, it’s inside the museum. Don’t miss musicians-in-residence Ben Salter and Danny Healy performing live in their museum studios each day.
