Forget those straight-laced museum tours with even straighter-laced tour guides. This tour provides all the important and relevant knowledge any art enthusiast will want while putting a tongue-in-cheek spin on both the highlights and lesser-known parts of the collection. Come ready to enjoy yourself.

Your 2.5-hour tour begins at the entrance to the museum when you meet your expert tour guide and a small group of no more than 15 people

Your guide will show you some of the most unusual and quirky artworks concealed (to all but the trained eye) within the museum’s vast collection. The famous highlights won’t be forgotten, but you’ll look at them from different angles and learn some of the more intriguing facts and backstories about them.

This unique experience is full of great art but also doesn't take itself too seriously. It will broaden your knowledge of art while also tickling your funny bone.

Inclusions

  • Ticket to the museum

Exclusions

  • Hotel Pick-Up / Drop-Off
  • Gratuities

Additional Info

  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • The MET also allows private parties to book out certain rooms for events (most commonly the Temple of Dendur), rendering them inaccessible for the duration of the event. If one of the listed pieces is unable to be viewed, the guide, at their discretion, will substitute another piece of important value.
  • The Met is fully wheelchair accessible. However, if you cannot climb the stairs of the central entrance to reach the meeting point, there is a ground level entrance one block south, near the intersection of 81st street and 5th avenue. Tell the desk you need to use the elevator to meet a group in the main lobby (at the pharaoh statue), which will then secure your entrance ticket. They will provide you with a temporary pass and help direct you upstairs.
  • This tour may not be suitable for young children under 13 years.
