Mediawiki is a good choice for open-content, publicly accessible wikis, 
provided you have enough data to justify the overhead.

Keep in mind that Mediawiki is the engine of Wikipedia, as John 
mentioned: it's built to handle large amounts of data and large numbers 
of users. Also, it cannot be made to delivery content to a restricted 
audience: the documentation specifically warns against trying to do 
that, even though plugins are available which claim to make it possible.
