Get a different take on New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art during this fast-paced, interactive, “renegade” tour that’s far from an ordinary museum tour. Focused on the weirdest and most scandalous artwork and accompanied by insider secrets and behind-the-scenes information, this guided tour isn't recommended for participants under 16 years of age. Plus, skip-the-line access means you'll save valuable vacation time.

What to Expect

Make your way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to meet your guide and group. Move past the crowds and enjoy skip-the-line admission with your guide in the lead.

Put aside any idea about stuffy museum tours as you enter this huge, hallowed art institution for a most unconventional tour. Expect your guide to focus on the strangest and most scandalous works of art as you move through the galleries.

Your guide customizes this tour based on your small group's interests, with no two tours ever the same. This tour goes beyond straight art history to tell the juicy backstories of the artists and the art itself. You'll play games, participate in quizzes, and find spots to take the best social media-worthy photos.

Booking this popular tour ahead of time ensures that you'll avoid disappointment in the case of a sold-out day.

The most I’ve enjoyed the Met

Our tour guide, Bex, gave us “permission” to have fun with the statues, had us come up with stories about our favourite paintings, and shared juicy feminist/anti-colonialist gossip about the museum that I loved. It was like coming on tour with your best friend who...More
