ABOUT US AT MUSEUM HACK
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.
We lead with passion and charisma. The joke is, "We do museum tours for people who don't like museums."
In addition to museum experiences, we also host a variety of "team building events for people who don't like team building."
