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.

if you like fun, this tour is for your. If you are too full of yourself to enjoy gags, skip it.

The "Frank" experience is like learning to drink beer. At first, you are just not sure about it. Maybe too strong, not for you. But after a few sips, you cannot think of going through life, or in this case the Met, without Frank. My...More

My family did the 2 hour tour at the Met with Frank. Frank is very good guide- he was funny, knowledgable - and he managed our group well. Parts of the tour were great- we learned some cool stuff about several pieces and artifacts. But...More
