We are a collective of renegade museum lovers who are dedicated to engaging people in museums as real people. We have degrees in art history, museum studies, theater, etc. and have worked in a wide variety of museums. For corporations and businesses, we offer a fun team building activity at the best museums in the world.

We knew NOTHING about the National Gallery of Art so decided to take a tour. Mike made it all very interesting and fun. You see all the highlights plus a few surprises. Well worth the money...especially if you know nothing about art!

As a DC area resident I have been to NGA many times, but this tour made it seem like the first time. We saw a wide variety of art works and learned amazing background about each one. After an engaging 2 hours, I was sad...More

This was just great! Everything, from the cheer to the Blue Cock on the roof to the challenges to saga of the woman who didn’t get credit for her work on the hands and feet of Rodin’s sculptures, was interesting and fun. Caroline and her...More

Erich was amazing and my family and I had a blast on this tour :) I enjoyed juicy and gossipy tidbits and loved imitating paintings with the tour group. A must do and a refreshing change from stuffy tours.

Several friends and I took our first Museum Hack at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. this week. We had an unforgettable experience. The museum is very large and a bit imposing, even for locals like us who have been many times. But...More
