I cannot recommend this group enough! I took a date on the VIP tour of the Met and loved it. Anna and Kylie were so much fun, hilarious, and very knowledgeable. I simply cannot say enough positive things about the experience.

I cannot recommend this group enough! I took a date on the VIP tour of the Met and loved it. Anna and Kylie were so much fun, hilarious, and very knowledgeable. I simply cannot say enough positive things about the experience.
After several failed attempts and cancellations (due to flu attacks) my husband and I finally went on the MET VIP tour. I must mention that Christine at the help desk was very empathetic and changed our tickets last minute - twice.
Based on reviews and friends recommendations we expected a great tour and were not disappointed. Everything was perfectly organized from the first minute to the last, Scott and Jim, our hilariously entertaining guides made sure that there were no dull moments. We learned a lot of fun facts and background stories about countless pieces on exhibit and even the museum building itself that most visitors (including regulars) will never hear.
Absolutely loved the tour and shall return!

Awesome time!
My friend and I took our other friend out in NYC for the day for her birthday. One of the things we did was the museum hack at the MET. It was so much fun and we had the best tour guide...Frank! He made us laugh and kept the tour interesting and upbeat! Love, love, love Frank and will ask for him again the next time we do a hack. The birthday girl also had a wonderful time, which was the goal!
Scott was a fantastic guide! Fun and fascinating un-highlights tour!
My daughter and I decided to take this tour to learn things you might not find out on a traditional docent tour of the Met. I don’t want to give anything away but it did not disappoint! Great way to spend a couple of hours in the winter in NYC and see and learn things at the Met even native New Yorkers might not know about.
Highly recommended
We had the best time on our Museum Hack tour at the American Museum of Natural History with Zak. He was super informative, engaging and very funny. We left knowing so many secret facts and info about the museum that you would NEVER hear from a normal guide. I highly recommend this tour for both museum lovers, and not so much lovers. So much fun! Thank you Zak! Really looking forward to booking my next tour with Museum Hack!
American Museum of Natural History: Un-Highlights Tour
Highly recommend for a totally unique museum experience. Kelly was wonderful--very knowledgeable and funny!
I learned more during this tour than I have in years on my own!
I attended Museum Hack’s Badass B$!&ches of the Met tour, and it was AMAZING. I've visited The Met at least a dozen times and I saw parts of it on this tour I had never seen before and I definitely learned more about the art, particularly some "hidden gems" and really interesting stories about female artists. Our tour guide was the fabulous Anna--I swear I'd follow her through every museum in this city.
