What the H*ck Happens on a Museum Hack Tour?

Pre-Tour Planning

Your Museum Hack event starts with a scheduled call with a renegade tour guide. This ~15 minute call is to ensure your experience checks every box on your team building wish-list. You and your guide will discuss your goals for the experience, potential games and activities we’ll include, any special considerations and the day’s itinerary.

World Class Tour Experience

On the day of your event, your guide will start the tour with an intro to Museum Hack and what your group can expect from the experience. We’ll then whisk you off to the galleries, sharing some of the most unconventional and salacious stories from our private archive. For example: history’s greatest grudge match, a magic wand hiding in plain sight, or the museum’s most expensive acquisition that they are trying to keep a secret. Our guides are obsessive researchers and performers that ensure accuracy, mind-blowing facts, and connections between what you see on tour and your team building goals (like communication, collaboration, problem solving and creative thinking).

Games & Activities

To maximize engagement, we’ll pause between every few tour stops for your group to participate in a carefully selected activity like an icebreaker, or a challenge like Matchmaker Matchmaker. All of our games and activities are fun, engaging, and interactive; even the introverts on your team will enjoy it. If you’ve chosen to include wine, we’ll stop to enjoy a glass before continuing on through the museum. We’ll share more of the best stories and play another game or two before awarding prizes, then wrap up with valuable lessons learned. Your group will leave the museum energized, refreshed, and ready to tackle every challenge that comes your way.

What Makes Our Tours Awesome

World Class Guides

Renegade Guides are award winning entertainers, comedians, academics and nerds; this is not your average docent tour. New guides train in the Museum Hack craft for 3 months before ever leading a tour, and we reserve our most experienced guides for private and corporate tours.

Smart Humor, Mind Blowing Facts, Juicy Gossip

If you prefer your history drunk and a little sassy then you are our kind of people. We do deep research into the museum collections to learn the facts you won’t find on the plaques, and then build out stories that connect with stuff relevant to your lives and goals.

Small Group, VIP, Social Experience

We usually split your group into squads of 10 people max, which is important because your guide will know you by name and can personalize the tour for what you want to see. It’s also a great social experience, so you will build stronger connections regardless of preexisting relationships.

Admission Included, Skip the Line

All private tours include museum admission, up to a $25 value per person. When you arrive at the museum, your guide will have your admission ready so you can launch right into the tour without waiting in line.

Featured on TripAdvisor, 5400+ 5 Star Reviews

Guests often call our guided tours “the best museum tour you will ever go on”. You may have noticed companies intentionally sharing average reviews of like 4.7 stars, which they do because a study a few years back said the internet trusts that more than a perfect 5.0. Our actual average is 5/5, so we share that.

100% “You’ll Love It” Guarantee
