I recently visited the Gregangelo Museum for their opening night of Metamorphosis and they did not disappoint!! I've visited a few times this past year since they modified to outdoor tours. I went at night, last tour of the evening and I felt like I was transported to another dimension- the lighting, costuming, works of art and attention to detail is indescribable; truly an our of this world experience. The performers are absolutely delightful, the riddles and poems they perform are highly entertaining and whimsical. I will be visiting again as soon as possible. My partner and I felt like we had a VIP up close and personal experience (where else do you get to have your own aerial performance 25 feet in front of you!?) If you've been thinking about going- think no more!! Just do it! I also highly recommend bringing school age and older children- it has a very Alice in Wonderland vibe that many ages will enjoy.

For about 30 mins you can completely forget about your regular time and space and just get lost in Gregangelo's creation of Metamorphosis. It is highly interactive (but at a safe distance) and you are often left thinking deeply about yourself. You will be guided and asked questions by some incredibly talented people who will more often than not break into rhyme or dance. On top of that, the experience is itself very visually stimulating. In a space like this it is perfectly acceptable to look up and all around you because there is just so much detail in every little corner. The visuals alone are a fresh wake up to the senses. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who just wants a break in their day - or have little ones that are getting antsy at home. This will be the perfect respite.

I attended the Metamorphosis experience and was truly transported! this 20-30 min excursion around the outside of the museum was lively with immaculately dressed and talented performers, engaging questions to draw you in to the experience and beautiful storytelling. I also liked that they have safety in mind and only do tours with your quaranteam (all masks all the time) and don't pair you with other groups. I've been to many of their outdoor experiences and i'm amazed at how they continue to transform their space to make new and magical adventures.

The immersive character of the Gregangelo Museum was an enhanced plus, although under restrict Covid-19 protocol, to a delightful gem of a show called "The Metamorphosis Experience". When it was done I was so stunned for a moment with that longing sensation of wanting more. Magical, like a good dream cut short because morning arrived. Coming out of the personal cocoon, yes, because it is immensely personal and reflexive in all of the interactive parts involved in the storyline, one finds a different day, filled with colors even for a foggy gray San Francisco afternoon. The experience was light and, maybe because of my reflections at that moment, deeply transformative for I had to face myself and some decisions I had made. Highly recommended off-beat precious theatrics of the best kind: smart, beautiful, witty, fun, and meaningful.

Solstice at The Gregangelo Museum was full of fun and characters. Many wonderful costumes and decorations at every stop.
Each character tells a little bit of the story and some even ask you inquisitive questions.
There is even a magical animal, that I will not spoil the suprise.
Dancing, Singing, Costumes and a Magical location, everyone should go!

The Gregangelo museum has always been a must visit in San Francisco. A San Francisco only creation by a born and raised San Franciscan, there are a few more quintessential experiences. However, with this most recent offering, Gregangelo and team have stepped it up.

Gregangelo, an immersive visionary before the creators of certain highbrow deliberately exclusionary immersive NYC had heard the word, has always been a creative pioneer. This horrific pandemic has given him a new challenge and he has soared above and beyond the goal.

Phantasma is an event I dubiously attended because of my previous wonderful experiences at the Gregangelo Museum. I can safely say that, either because of the dearth of entertainment possibilities during the pandemic, or because necessity is the mother of invention, this event surpassed all expectations. Over the course of the 20 minute experience, we were taken from life, to death, and back to life again. 15 different entertainers engaged with us in a completely safe way, showing us the possibilities that could exist for us as we emerge from this horrific year.

Never one to shy away from the difficult questions, this event asks them of you, challenges you, makes you laugh, makes you think, all while simply walking around the outside of what appears to be a home in San Francisco.

We met death, Sheherazade, Pan, and the creepiest little girl that ever creepied. We heard music, watched a light show aerial performance, played truth or dare, contemplated our impact, and never once did I feel unsafe or at risk - emotionally OR in a Covid world.

Go once, go again.
No, I don’t have photos. I was too engaged.

This tour is quintessential San Francisco -- quirky, colorful, inventive. Surprisingly, my teen age daughter and I were moved to tears at one point! Our wonderful guide, Greg, led us on a one-hour journey that was both playful and profound. This is the perfect thing to do with your pod. Bonus: As you feed your soul, you are also supporting young artists!

I was looking for something unique to do for Halloween fun, and came across “House of Weird “ at the Gregangelo museum. It was great! They put a lot of quality work and decor into this experience. I only wish each little performance lasted a bit longer. 😊

The “Riddle of the Sphinx” tour is fantastic! It is unique and beautiful, a bona fied San Francisco experience. The way the tour is designed offers participants an opportunity to interact with the artwork by exploring insights that are deep and profound. There’s many ornate mosaics constructed not only with tiles, but also with gem-like stones that move with color and depth. The sculptures you see as you walk through the installations are made using a variety of materials, including sticks, twigs, moss, and other environmentally friendly things. Some of the small fountains attract hummingbirds; an extra-special treat when they feed on nearby flowers, or take a quick dip in the flowing water. And speaking of flowers, there’s plenty of blooms and beautiful plants to enjoy throughout the tour. I’ve taken the tour twice so far, with two different guides, and am sure I’ll be back again. Both guides were kind, considerate, funny, and engaging; and each had a very different style of sharing the tour’s material. The fun thing about this was it made the experience totally different each time. Well done!
Last, but not least, the free gift at the end of the tour is an elaborate internet experience that in itself, is worth the price of the tour.
“The Riddle of Sphinx,” excursion offers a place we can get outdoors safely with our pod, enjoy one and other, experience new things, and have a lovely, memorable time.

This multisensory experience is a spectacular mix of glamour, music, story, performance, enchantment and the wild forest.
I feel like I step right into my favorite storybook and all the magical beings come alive from the fairytale.
I can feel the love, passion and vibrant energy from the artists, they bring so much joy, brightness and aliveness into the experience.
I am so thankful that they keep the creativity alive! The experience is very safe and well curated.
It is not only a feast for the eye and soul but also an incredibly transformative journey that embraces change and inspires new perspectives! You absolutely don't want to miss it.
