About Museum Hack

We do museum tours for people who don't like museums. We are based in New York City and have grown to DC, SF, LA, and Chicago. Our corporate clients include Google, Facebook, and eBay. Museums around the world hire us for special workshops and VIP events and we’re looking for a Creative Associate & Tour Guide to help keep our innovation going!

We craft 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 world class collection at incredible museums around the world 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 also consult for Fortune 500s and top museums worldwide.
