Museum Hack: Why did you apply to work with Museum Hack?

Brooke: I needed a good excuse for the amount of time I spend in museums. Security probably thought I was casing the place. Plus, it means I get to spend even more time in them (muhahaha)…

Museum Hack: Tell us about one of your favorite Museum Hack experiences. 

Brooke: I really love my fellow tour guides. They are just as nerdy about art as I am and they always have the inside scoop on where a museum’s best butt is.

Museum Hack: What’s a fun fact that most people don’t know about you? 

Brooke: When I was little, I wanted to be the first ballerina astronaut in space. A realistic goal, I know.

Museum Hack: If you had to be trapped in the Museum overnight, what would you do?

Brooke: I’d sneak behind the scenes and see what they new exhibits they’re working on and what isn’t currently being displayed to the public.

Museum Hack: If you could work at any museum, which one would you choose?

Brooke: The Louvre. I love that it doubles as the home of many amazing works of art and also a place of historic significance. And it’s so big that even if I worked there for five years I could still get lost; there’d always be new art to see.

Museum Hack: If you were to be reincarnated as an animal, which would it be and why?

Brooke: Hands down, definitely an otter. They manage to have fun even when it’s miserable out — also they are just adorable!
