What you'll learn in this museum class:

You want a highly-academic, highbrow tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art where we stand before the great masters, contemplating their skilled use of line and form, while simultaneously placing them in the pantheon of other art historical geniuses, right?

You picked the wrong tour.

Welcome to Museum Hack VIP, our premiere museum experience.

Perfect for a date night, an evening with friends or a capstone to a New York City visit, our famous VIP tour guides will show you the secrets, backstories and hidden nooks and crannies of the Greatest Museum on Earth.

This “by New York City residents, for New York City residents” tour will show you the Met like you have never seen it before.

On a Museum Hack VIP tour, you can expect:
  • Customization: we pick our favorites and mix them with your interests to make a totally custom tour.
  • A fast pace: we see twice as many objects as a standard museum tour.
  • Intimacy: The smallest group size of any tours of the Met.
  • Photo ops: Instagram-worthy shots to wow your friends.
  • Drinks: A glass of wine will be served, but be ready to drink it fast.
  • And plenty of surprises along the way.
We promise that Museum Hack VIP will be the classiest, most salacious, most exciting evening you’ve ever had in a museum. 

Please keep in mind that the Museum Hack VIP contains strong language, adult content, and wine that may not be appropriate for younger children. Your discretion is advised.

110% Satisfaction Guarantee: If you don’t absolutely love the experience, we will gladly refund all of your money… plus a little extra.

You want in? Good. We can’t wait to see you.

In the event that you miss the tour, there are no refunds. Museum Hack is not endorsed by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Meeting Point: 1000 5th Avenue, New York, New York 10028 United States

It’s different experience than to go by Yourself and read the “stories “. Most of the time I don’t remember anything. But with this experience in museum I not just remember, but I am telling my friends too. We didn’t explore everything ( its not possible anyway) but everything we talked about was interesting and memorable. Thank You
