What Makes Our Tours Awesome
World Class Guides
Renegade Guides are award winning entertainers, comedians, academics and nerds; this is not your average docent tour. New guides train in the Museum Hack craft for 3 months before ever leading a tour.
Smart Humor, Mind Blowing Facts, Juicy Gossip
If you prefer your history drunk and a little sassy then you are our kind of people. We do deep research into the museum collections to learn the facts you won't find on the plaques, and then build out stories that connect with stuff in your life.
Small Group, VIP, Social Experience
Our standard group size is 10 or less, which is important because your guide will know you by name and can personalize the tour for what you want to see. It's also a great social experience, so you can come solo and make new friends or bring your SO, BFF, mom, grandma, OkCupid / Bumble / Grindr-crush, Tamagotchi, FWB or entire squad.
Admission Included, Skip the Line
All full price tickets include museum admission, up to a $25 value (so the tour portion is more like $34 - $44). When you arrive at the museum, your guide will have your admission ready so you can launch right into the tour without waiting in line.
Featured on TripAdvisor, 5400+ 5 Star Reviews
Guests often call our guided tours "the best thing to do in Chicago" and sometimes "pretty f***ing awesome!" You may have noticed companies intentionally sharing average reviews of like 4.7 stars, which they do because a study a few years back said the internet trusts that more than a perfect 5.0. Our actual average is 5/5, so f**k it.
100% "You'll Love It" Guarantee
Our Renegade Guides are wicked smart and will take you on a sassy, whirlwind tour of the museum. Most guests LOVE this experience and if you feel anything other than 10/10 then we will refund your money.
