de Young Fine Arts Museum: Game of Thrones Inspired Tour


Have you read 'Game of Thrones' so many times that you broke the book's spine? Does your loved one keep saying "The night is dark and full of terrors" and you just don't get it? Did you not read past 'Game of Thrones' because you got immediately suspicious that we don't know the difference between 'Game of Thrones' and 'A Song of Ice and Fire'?


Our 1.5 hour 'Game of Thrones' tour of the de Young Fine Arts Museum is for enthusiasts and dabblers alike. We've mined the museum for George RR Martin's real-life inspiration and chose the examples most likely to knock a wildling's boots off. Along the way your wits, courage, and dexterity will be tested in a battle for the Iron Throne... or at least a prize worth dancing with the Drowned God for.

Tour is for ages 16+, seriously. No one under 16 will be admitted. Email [email protected] for info on our private tours.


"Great tour! I'd give my sword hand for another ticket!" - Jaime Lannister

DOTHRAS CHEK, and see you nerds at the museum

de Young Fine Arts Museum: Badass Bitches


Remember when feminism happened, and Georgia O’Keeffe kicked butt, and now museums and the art world totally treat male and female artists with equal value? JK JK IT’S STILL SUPER BAD! On this two-hour tour of the Met, we get three things done:

1. We celebrate the awesome women who ARE represented
2. We fill you in on some women you haven’t heard about
3. We kick some ass - we hack the patriarchy and actually (briefly) raise the percentage of art on view by female artists!

The future is female, and guess what: the past was hella female too. Get ready to join the revolution (or keep revolution-ing, whatever, we support your journey wherever you are).

    Perfect For:
  • Feminists from all backgrounds
  • Smashers of the patriarchy
  • Beyoncé
  • Guests 16 years or older
