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  

Directions: Guests will meet their tour guide in the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in front of the Egyptian Pharaoh statue near the Information Desk.

Refund Policy
We cannot accept tour cancellations with less than 36 hours notice because slots are already guaranteed, and with less than 36 hours notice, it will be difficult for us to re-sell the slots.

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

It was entertaining and enlightening at the same time. I wish it was longer. Full 3 hours or even more. Kevin and Lindsey made it fun.

Energetic and entertaining tour guides - saw more of the museum than I ever had before... Definitely want to go back on my own to take a deeper dive into some of the areas they introduced us to. Brought relatives visiting from TX - everyone loved it!

Kevin and Evan were our guides for this tour. It was the equivolent to a walking art history comedy show. The right amount of knowledge and humor to make this 2 hour tour worth taking. If you are interested in learning something new in a fun way, this is the tour for you.

Better off going without a tour guide. We didn't get to see much and spent way too much time on mediocre pieces. Our guide spent about 10 minutes talking about a coin meanwhile there were other exceptional pieces of art that we would have preferred to look at. The best part about this tour was going to the roof top otherwise would not recommend.
