MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS RENEGADE TOUR GUIDE POSITION
You'll be leading small groups of people on a fast-paced, spirited journey through the BEST encyclopedic museum on Earth – the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We want guides who can share the juicy stories and fascinating histories of their selected art pieces in an engaging and succinct way.
This is not a full-time gig.
IMPORTANT: If you have a steady full-time 9-5 type job, or if you're absolutely never ever available on Friday or Saturday nights, please do not apply.
ABOUT MUSEUM HACK
We pride ourselves in crafting amazing museum experiences for museum skeptics. Our best tour guides are not the center of attention -- they make the Museum the star attraction. We lead with passion and charisma. The joke is, "We do museum tours for people who don't like museums."
Museum Hack uses the expansive collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art as our playground to create un-highlights tours that focus on hidden works, oddities, and saucy stories. Museum Hack guides combine these stories with antics and quirky activities that get you to think about the museum experience in new ways.
We are based in New York City.
