Kevin Hurley is an incredible Museum Hack tour guide in New York City, offering corporate and private tours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Museum Hack: What are three fun facts about you most people don’t know?
- I used to tell people that I liked the band Hanson as an ironic joke… now I actually like the band Hanson.
- There was a time when I was ranked in the top 100 of the Pokemon card game. (56 to be exact)
- I got my first tattoo when I was 15 on a dare from my mother.
Museum Hack: If you had to be trapped in the Museum overnight what would you do?
I would find the armor that best fit me and reenact “A Knights Tale” starring Heath leader as Sir Ulrich Von Lichtenstein.
Museum Hack: If you could work at any other museum, which one would you choose.
The Philadelphia Art Museum. It’s where I’m from and I’m very passionate about the city.
Museum Hack: If you were reincarnated as an animal, which would it be and why?
Probably a Hippo. They were always my favorite because of how majestic they could be underwater, while still eating whatever they wanted.
Museum Hack: If you could have a drink with one person in history for 15 minutes, who would it be with and what are you drinking?
This is a super tough question. I would probably choose the original enlightened Buddha. However, because time is not linear I’m told that would be impossible to know who was the first. So I guess anyone who has achieved true enlightenment would be good. I would drink whatever Kool-Aid they told me to.
