Join this highly interactive, subversive, fun, non-traditional museum tour. The de Young is part of the incredible Fine Art Museums of San Francisco. It's the most visited art museum west of the Mississippi. It has objects from around the globe, an observation tower to die for... heck, even the building itself is a work of art! This museum is awesome. So we hacked it.

We offer a high-energy, group-oriented tour experience certain to keep you entertained and teach you a bit along the way.

On a 90-minute Museum Hack tour, you should expect:
  • Group participation
  • Juicy gossip and backstory
  • A fast pace
  • Fun photos
Join us for a wild adventure through the de Young, one that you wouldn't get by simply visiting the museum on your own.

*This tour is not affiliated with or endorsed by the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco.

Not your average museum tour!

Bad*** b*****s with Kayla

This was an super fun and informative tour. Kayla was funny and very informed on the subject. She made the subject of women in art light yet inspiring and I left feeling sad about the current prejudice faced by women in the art world but...More
