A night with Museum Hack meant a whole lot more than walking through exhibits. This was a night for learning and adventure. We broke off into smaller groups, engaged in a pre-game pro-museum cheer that would make Al Pacino proud, and set off to tackle some of the Met’s most interesting and peculiar exhibits.

 Over the next two hours the guides illuminated various works of art with stories of sexual deviance, cannibalism, and financial coups (who knew one could find all of this content outside of HBO?). While a lot of the works were familiar, the backstories were anything but. This was certainly not the type of information found in art history textbooks.

Along the way, we engaged in photo competitions that allowed us to get creative and respectfully poke fun at areas of the museum. We definitely enjoyed the challenge.

Rather than trying to see everything possible, the Museum Hack team curated an in depth, interactive adventure for a handful of exhibits, exposing controversial secrets, shocking facts, and fascinating details along the way. As a team, we learned a ton about the museum and it’s collections, but more importantly we picked up some valuable pointers from our guides on how to take educational initiatives and make them irresistibly fun and engaging. Needless to say it will be hard for any of us to attend a normal museum tour ever again thanks to the wonderfully passionate and knowledgeable Museum Hack team!
