This is not your grandma's museum tour. What we offer is a fun, group-oriented VIP museum adventure. You will be entertained... and learn a bit along the way. We strive to offer a brand new view of the Met, one that you wouldn't get by simply visiting the museum on your own. Not affiliated or endorsed by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We are a collective of renegade museum educators who are dedicated to engaging people in museums as real people. We have degrees in art history, museum studies, theater, etc. and have worked in a wide variety of museums.

  For corporations and businesses, we offer a fun team building activity at the best museum in the world.

Harry and Kate, you guys are phenomenal and hilarious! Can we hang out next time I'm in NY?? My boyfriend and I loved this tour! We had never been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art previously, but expected that if we went on our own we would be wandering around for hours looking halfheartedly at exhibit after exhibit. With Harry... More

Our guide Lily made this one of the best museum experiences ever. Entertaining, informative and joyful this tour goes so fast but covers things which you wouldn't usually pay attention to. It gave me tools to use for making museums fun and really looking at a piece and taking it in. Thank you so much for a great two hours... More

We had a wonderful time at the Met. Our guide Zak R was entertaining and knowledgeable. We saw parts of the Met that we had never been to before and lots of history behind many of the pieces. It was an amazing evening! Thanks!

We visited the American Museum of Natural History today with Zak R. We have been to Museum before BUT we learned some very interesting and fun facts during our tour. Zak R. told us some terrific stories about exhibits you would not hear on a typical Museum tour. We will do this again!

My best friend and I went as a birthday present to me. We were discussing in the car how our growth as humans is reflected in the way we celebrate our birthdays nowadays. Feels like just 5 years ago we were getting drunk in some bar in the city and calling it the best night ever ... meanwhile I barely... More

I had outrageously high expectations of the UnHighlights tour at the AMNH and they were still exceeded. Dustin took us on an epic tour, combining interesting facts, terrible (hilarious) jokes and interactive tasks (#dinoselfie). My friends mainly came on the tour to humor me but they were absolute converts and we hope to go again soon.

I attended Museum Hacker's BAB feminist tour on Saturday at The Met. Our guide, Bex, was exceptional- intelligent, funny and engaging. The tour was the perfect amount of time, 2 hours. Bex led our group of six throughout a series of the museum's collections. She told the stories behind the far and few betweens pieces showcasing empowered women or pieces... More

What an awesome review! We're stoked to hear you had such a good time dismantling the patriarchy with Bex -- and we're ESPECIALLY stoked to hear that you learned a few things about some of the amazing women represented at the museum in the process!
