Kiernan, Tour Guide Extraordinaire

Museum Hack: What are three fun facts about you most people don’t know? 

  • I’ve been to 44 of the 50 US states.
  • I’m an excellent biscuit baker.
  • I’ve gone swimming with sharks and penguins

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

I would cast the subjects of the paintings in a massive absurdist play in which I would do all the voices. 

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

I’m totally obsessed with castles. I would love to work in any museum that is housed inside a castle. Arundel Castle in England would be perfect. Architecture, Art, History, and it’s near the ocean and I love the seaside

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

Falcon- I could fly, hang out in the woods, and perform sneak attacks on my dinner.

Museum Hack: If you could have a drink with one person in history for 15 minutes, who would it be and what would you drink? 

I would try to go Daiquiri for Daiquiri with Ernest Hemingway. Pretty sure that I wouldn’t last 15 minutes and he would drink me under the table, but what a fascinating dude!
