Today, we’re talking to Jen, one of our rockstar tour guides in New York City!
Museum Hack: Why did you apply to work with us?
Jen: My friend Shahna went on a VIP tour and texted me half way through saying, THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING. A few months later I went on a public tour and texted Shahna half way through saying, THIS IS WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING. Roughly a year after that giving crazy museum tours is WHAT I AM DOING!
Museum Hack: Tell us about one of your favorite Museum Hack experiences.
Jen: Favorite Museum Hack experiences almost always include my guests having an awesome time, if I get a hug at the end I know it went well. Tips are nice but hugs are better.
Museum Hack: What’s a fun fact that most people don’t know about you?
Jen: I love pickles, a lot.
Museum Hack: If you had to be trapped in the Museum overnight, what would you do?
Jen: I would sit in all of the chairs in the various period rooms and take a snooze in the beds. I would try on a number of dresses in the costume collection. I would touch Pixel Deer 24 on the nose and pet the fish in Astor Court. It takes a lot of willpower not to do these things on a regular basis.
Museum Hack: If you could work at any other museum, which one would you choose?
Jen: Oh geez, the Brooklyn Museum has some of my favorite paintings. I also have fond memories of the National Gallery in DC. I recently visited a maritime museum in La Have, Nova Scotia. It was tiny, literally one room but FULL of amazing historical treasures both beautiful and quirky, it would be a nice summer retreat museum.
Museum Hack: If you were to be reincarnated as an animal, which would it be and why?
Jen: A sea bird. I like the idea of being able to fly but also relaxing on the ocean whenever the mood strikes me.
