Today, we’re talking to Lindsay Head, one of our fabulous NYC tour guides! Read on to find out about one of the scariest things Lindsay’s ever done in her life and why she’d love to bring a Ouija board to a night at the museum.
MH: Why did you apply to work with Museum Hack?
Lindsay: I realized very quickly after moving to the city that I was not cut out for a desk job. I wanted to be on my feet. I wanted to tell stories. I wanted to connect. And then BOOM. There I was… Okay, it was a much longer process than that.
MH: Tell us about one of your favorite Museum Hack experiences.
Lindsay: One of my favorite Museum Hack experiences was finding out at the end of my Beta Tour that one of my guests was a long time museum director and art historian. She’d been in the art world for so long and said she still learned new things. It wasn’t the validation that was so wonderful (although it didn’t hurt), it was that I got to entertain and engage people from all walks of life, and all were excited to receive new information. Awesome.
MH: What’s a fun fact that most people don’t know about you?
Lindsay: I went to clown school. It was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done.
MH: If you had to be trapped in the Museum overnight, what would you do?
Lindsay: I would pack snacks and a Ouija board. That’s all I need to say.
MH: If you could work at any other museum, which one would you choose?
Lindsay: I would choose the dOCUMENTA art festival in Kassel, Germany. It takes over the entire city. There are exhibits in museums. There are exhibits in the woods. There are exhibits that you don’t even know are exhibits #minimalism. It’s unreal.
MH: If you were to be reincarnated as an animal, which would it be and why?
Lindsay: A blue whale. No predators. Lots of big splashes. Lots of krill. Sounds good to me!
