Nick Gray, Keynote Speaker for Conferences

Hi! My name is Nick Gray, and I’m the Founder of Museum Hack. We are a company of renegade tour guides that lead “unconventional” tours at the best museums in the world. We believe you should visit more museums, more often.

Nick Gray’s TEDx Talk

Museums are a great space for you to get inspired about the future and learn about history. But most people don’t like museums. They think they’re boring, irrelevant, and lack entertainment. So I started Museum Hack to change that.

How To Visit a Museum, by Nick Gray

Today Museum Hack is a profitable business with 50+ incredible employees who give thousands of VIP tours each year at museums in NYC, DC, SF, Chicago, and LA. Our tours are especially popular with our corporate clients who hire us for team building, company offsites, storytelling training, sales workshops, and lots more. Sometimes I get to travel the world as a keynote speaker.

Our first museum adventures came from word of mouth — friends bringing friends — but since then we’ve been featured in the press, including: The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Travel + Leisure, and many more.

Make Your Audience Fall In Love & Be Inspired

I give a really great speech about how museums are f***ing awesome. I talk about how my company was founded on a romantic date, and what makes Museum Hack’s tours very special — story telling, passion pieces and more. Most importantly, I like to talk about why museums matter and why Museum Hack is working hard to get a new audience excited about museums. Can I speak at your conference or company or museum?
