I stumbled on Art Smart planning a family trip to NYC. Traveling with 4 teens (2 college bound 18yr boys, 2 girls 17 & 14). Kids had limited art knowledge and boys had no real interest in going to museum. Having personalize overview seemed like great idea and it was. Boys in particular were impressed - admitted without the tour they would have just wandered with no clue what they were looking at. It was a bit of a splurge but so worth it. Christian started at the beginning with earliest pieces Egyptian, Greek, Roman and we wrapped with post impressionists. Tied the beginning to the end- you can tell he is a fantastic professor. We only had 2 hours but easily could have spent the day. I went to the MOMA the following day and really felt the lack of having someone knowledgeable with us, but we were able to take some of learnings with us - Arrangements were also so easy! Anthony so responsive - I did all scheduling /payment via email. Thank you Team Art Smart for the highlight of our trip!

We took the artsmart tour at the MET “ how to look at art”. It was perfect. They communicated with us several times during the days leading up to the tour. We had not trouble meet8ng up with our guide. Christian was our guide. He is an artist himself and an art professor so he really knew his stuff. It was wonderful to understand what we were seeing and how the artists influenced one another and to see the evolution of the art. Highly recommend

My two teenage daughters and I had a fabulous tour at the Met with Marina yesterday! She was engaging, friendly, and highly knowledgable. I emailed the company ahead of time letting them know what our specific interests were, and Marina had prepared a tour just for us. We skipped the lines, made a beeline to the highlights we were most interested in, and engaged deeply with some truly memorable works of art. We are still talking about these works and will remember them forever. Worth every penny!!

Amy, thank you so much for your review! Our team is always so pleased to deliver the best experiences of museums. It warms my heart that teens were involved; we've heard stories about how kids' art experiences with us have made impact 10+ years later as they continue their lifelong love of the arts that started with our tours. I'm thrilled to know that you'll keep treasuring those moments with us!

Having visited the major art museums in NYC several times, this tour was a unique and refreshing experience. Media was a fantastic guide. She gave the right amount of detail, was happy to answer questions, and was responsive to our requests.

I wanted to take my 8 year old daughter to the Natural History Museum but was concerned it would be overwhelming for us both so I signed up for a tour with Art Smart. Definitely glad that I did! We took a 2 hour tour (which still only covered a fraction of the museum) and hit a number of highlights including a few halls that we had specifically requested. Our guide, William, was incredibly knowledgable and friendly. My daughter and I learned a lot about sea life, the history of the earth, evolution and dinosaurs among other things. Most importantly, I learned that Art Smart is a great resource for educational yet fun tours in NYC. We will definitely sign up for another the next time we are in the city.

Thank you Michelle! We know how challenging large museums can be for families to navigate, and we love letting parents just relax and enjoy knowing the whole family will be in for a treat. And we're so excited to have William on the team. He's my son's favorite guide and my son, being raised in museums, is one of the toughest critics! We look forward to seeing you soon on another adventure.
