Museum Hack is a band of overly-enthusiastic, renegade museum tour guides. We lead adventures in New York, Washington DC, San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles. 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.
Note: Museum Hack tours are for adults only. Minimum age is 18. Attendees under 18 will not be allowed to attend and may be turned away.
I really enjoyed the class itself and the information Jessamyn gave us. She was very knowledgeable and presented the information in a very animated and interesting way. I personally did not like all the games. I am not very knowledgeable about art and was thrilled with the interesting, fun way it was presented, but felt kind of put on the spot to interpret something I didn't understand or to be thinking about a picture I needed to take while she was talking about something else. I know she didn't mean it that way AT ALL. Nevertheless, the history and the additional pictures she showed us on her iPad and the way she explained everything was enough for me. I would still definitely recommend it to others.
Great Tour led by Jessamyn! Fun and interactive (played games) and learned a lot too.
Jessamyn was awesome. The whole experience was well... badass! Matt and Dani Nessetti
The tour was great! I've been to the Met many times before but it was nice to get a more in-depth view and history behind some artwork I wouldn't have been able to get on my own. Jen was a funny and informative tour guide.
We enjoyed our tour of the Getty today with Monisha. She was very animated and fun and we learned about the dearth of women artists in the Getty collection among other things. Monisha lifted our spirits after the parking fiasco. The parking was a nightmare; not your fault, but even when we told the parking attendant that we had tickets for a tour, he wouldn't let us in. Finally, after waiting and arguing, the attendant started letting cars in. Our tour started almost a half hour late because people were held up trying to get into the Getty parking lot (once in, there were spaces!) We will not be going there again and I will write the Getty about their appalling parking situation. Let's just say, it put a damper on our enthusiasm for the tour. Thanks for listening. Good luck with the Getty. They have so much money, they don't really care who has problems getting into their parking structure; it makes no difference to them. I hope you find some museums that are more "user friendly."
Fabulous! Lindsay and Jim are both wonderful guides. A super fun evening with super fun people.
We had the best time on our tour with Kevin. He was fun, informative, interesting, and made everyone feel included. Highly recommend even if you've already been to the museum!
Desire 1. More actual female artists work. 2. More stories about the origin or creation story of the art would be interesting. Our guide was outstanding in terms of positive energy and tying in her personal and professional relevance to the art! The exercises were terrific at engagement and bonding.
A Fun, engaging, creative way to see the Getty!
Such a great tour! We had an amazing tour guide (Elizabeth) who gave us a museum experience like we never had before. It was high energy, informative and we learned things we would have otherwise missed out on while experiencing the Met. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to know more about the female influences at the Met or just a great tour in general.
