Museum Hack is a band of overly-enthusiastic, renegade museum tour guides. We lead adventures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, and the National Gallery of Art. Our small-group experiences key on passionate storytelling, juicy gossip, and little-known oddities. It'll be the best 2 hours you've ever had in a museum.
For People Who Don’t Like Museums
Museum Hack tours focus on the incredible works hidden in deep dark corners. Our renegade tour guides will tell stories to keep you engaged in awesomely unconventional ways.
We Hacked It
Our un-highlights tour puts an alternative spin on the museum, featuring other sides to the highlights we love, as well as some of the strangest, wildest, sexiest stories hidden throughout the museum. Each Museum Hack tour is customized based on the audience. Because we have small groups, the guides can modify the agenda based on your experience.
We promise you will have an active, fun, engaging session. 110% satisfaction guaranteed.
Emily was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and charming. I would recommend this class to anyone.
I'm not a big fan of tours, especially interactive ones... but I had heard god things about Museum Hack and I wanted to view The MET in a new way. Both reasons proved correct. Our guides, Anna (leader) and Sara, were enthusiastic, quick (witted), and interesting. They picked (what felt like, but surely wasn't) random items in The MET and told us interesting and sometimes irrelevant details about them - there wasn't one thing I found boring. Would totally recommend for new and well-seasoned visitors to The MET. Night tours are especially good, as there are fewer people about.
Zak was awesome!
This tour was great!!! It was very educational, but in a fun way. Our tour guide Harry I think his name was was absolutely amazing!!! He was hilarious and really made the tour a lot of fun. Kelly was very sweet as well. They made a great team. My boyfriend and I kept saying how great it was and we look forward to doing another class and museum hacker. Thank You for a very fun Saturday night!!

The ladies were fabulous!!! We all (4) had a great time!: insightful, funny, educational, etc. We will definitely recommend it to friends and visitors
Went on this tour with Lindsay - she was so amazing! I learned new things about history an art, and lots of laughs were involved. Also loved the awesome sunglasses and Starbursts we got during the tour. Definitely would recommend this tour to someone going to the Met, whether they've visited before or not.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time during our VIP tour of the Met. The tour was a birthday gift to me from her and I looked forward to it for weeks. Our tour guides, Anna and Frank, were knowledgeable and humorous. They tailored our tour on questions they had asked our group at the start. We saw numerous artifacts and paintings and were given the "inside scoop" on the works we encountered. They even held a contest on who took the best photo of a subject that they picked out. I happened to win that contest and the prize was something that I was very fond of in the museum store. Anna even took pictures of us in front of a sculpture of our choosing and she printed them up so that we can take them home. Overall it was a terrific way to spend and evening.
My husband and I are Met members, but this was an entirely new way to tour the Met. Our tour guides were very well-informed and friendly. We had so much fun browsing the museum with our tour group! There were lots of laughs, great stories about artifacts we had never even noticed, and some fun games as well. I'd recommend this tour to anyone looking to squeeze a lot into a few hours. I highly recommend to both out of town visitors and native New Yorkers!
