The Museum That Visits You
Let’s talk about another big piece of this puzzle: Art!
Studies have shown that Art Therapy, when delivered bedside, can have a significant impact on a patient’s well being and recovery. In fact, hospitals have long relied on Art Therapy programs to add another dimension to their healing toolkit. Recently, doctors in Canada and the United Kingdom even began prescribing museum visits to their patients as a way to treat pain and other afflictions. Since patients can’t simply jump out of bed and dash off to a gallery or museum, MONA brings the museum to them when they need it most.
That's why MONA is the only Museum That Visits You.
