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.

My dad was visiting me in New York and we love going to the Met and the Natural History Museum. I heard about this company and thought it would be a great way to visit familiar haunts in a new way, so I booked us tours at each on separate days. What a great find! I've been to

Highly recommend Kevin as a tour guide! Brings comedy and humor to the arts. Enjoyed the tour and behind the scene stories. BTW...if you’re looking for Kevin by the pharaoh statue, his side profile is remarkably similar to Brad Pitt.
