How to Hear the Untold Stories of Art & Artists in NYC
*This is a sponsored post on behalf of Museum Hack. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in anyway.
About a dozen years ago, I was double majoring in Art History and History in college. That brought me to many of the wonderful museums throughout New York City. Most of the time I was there to see a particular exhibit and despite my love for what I was seeing, I always felt like there was so much more behind the scenes that could make my experience so much more exciting.
Museum Hack does renegade tours at the world’s best museums. The tours throughout New York City include the untold stories of the art and artists, juicy gossip about the museum, and activities in the galleries. Every tour is unique and customized on the fly to include the pieces that Musuem Hack’s guides are really passionate about, not necessarily the most famous or most expensive pieces. Their goal is to make tours fun and engaging, and help overcome Museum Fatigue — a real problem where visitors get tired and bored when they visit museums.
Throughout my years in Corporate America and even now as a blogger, I am often apart of many team building events. They’re often impersonal and stale. Team Building is a large part of the Museum Hack business. They host teams for excursions through the museum that offer the same, fun and fast-paced approach as our public tours, but are optimized for bringing a team closer together and fostering a great company culture. Some companies do a scavenger hunt where their team works together to follow clues in the museum. You don’t have to be a big company to invest in team building, the minimum group size is two guests! Some of Museum Hack’s Team Building Guests have included Google, LEGO, ESPN, Spotify and others.
While most museum tours focus on facts, and showing off the most famous pieces, Museum Hack tours are different because we tell stories about the art and artists, do fun activities in the galleries, take selfies with the art, and generally have a great time!
Museum Hack currently has tours available at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The American Museum of Natural History. Find out more and purchase tickets for your next tour HERE!
