The Museum Hack tour about women was a really fun and targeted way to explore the National Gallery of Art. The stories about the women who created, facilitated, promoted, and posed for the art were sometimes inspiring, sometimes infuriating, but always interesting. I highly recommend...More

We learned detailed info for perhaps 12-15 paintings/painters from our guide who made this experience fun and interactive. He knew his stuff and made each of us feel valued. We even had little light-hearted assignments throughout our tour. Highly recommend.

We learned so much and it was very entertaining! Hannah did a great job of guiding us to significant pieces and filling us in in the backstory. I would definitely recommend this tour!

I'm a DC resident and I've walked through this museum dozens of times. This tour let me see it in a new light. Our tour guide, Caroline, was clever, the information was well-researched... I had an incredible afternoon.

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!

I love art but art museums can be overwhelming. This was a funny, engaging, and irreverent (in a good way) tour of the National Gallery, and my husband and I both had a blast! Our guide, Hannah, was excellent - very informative, enthusiastic, and fun!...More
