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.

The hack tour I went on with Jim was a great tour blasting through the MET to different galleries and highlighting great little stories behind some the the museums less frequented pieces.

Sara was great--funny and informative. It moves quickly through the galleries, and you learn a lot about the artists behind the works of art.

This tour was so much fun. Our tour guide Jim was hilarious, and we learned so much! It's definitely not your average museum tour. I'd absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting or just wanting to see a different side of the Met.
