About Museum Hack
New York: We lead unconventional tours of the world’s best museums. Ours are not your grandma’s museum tours - though, your grandma would probably have a lot of fun! We began offering these unique experiences at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and today host hundreds of tours at museums in cities across the U.S. Our signature un-highlights tour puts an alternative spin on the museum, featuring the other sides to the highlights we love, as well as some of the strangest, wildest, and sexiest stories hidden throughout the museum. Other specialty tours, like our Badass Bitches tours or Drag Tours help you see the museum in a whole new way. In addition to our group tours, we do private tours for groups (no strangers allowed!), families, corporate teams, and more. Spots are limited and tours fill up fast, so we recommend booking your tour in advance.

Get a different take on New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art during this fast-paced, interactive, “renegade” tour that’s far from an ordinary museum tour. Focused on the weirdest and most scandalous artwork and accompanied by insider secrets and behind-the-scenes information, this guided tour isn't recommended for participants under 16 years of age. Plus, skip-the-line access means you'll save valuable vacation time.

This is without doubt the best museum tour I’ve been on. Not only did Jim introduce us to some of the museum’s best kept secrets, but he has a wicked sense of humor and made the two hours fly by. Less than 24 hours later...More

Lots of dinosaur skeletons and taxidermy animals. I would rather see live animals in a zoo, and the abundance of dinosaur skeletons was over the top. The museum is large, noisy, and not particularly well organized. It probably needs a major update. Also, there was...More

Lindsay led us at a fast pace through many areas of this huge museum, telling us funny anecdotes about its history and creators as well as about the exhibits themselves. She engaged and involved the group. It was a great introduction.
