This ain't your grandma's museum tour. What we offer is a fun, group-oriented VIP museum adventure. You will be entertained... and learn a bit along the way. We strive to offer a brand new view of the National Gallery, one that you wouldn't get by simply visiting the museum on your own. Not affiliated or endorsed by the National Gallery of Art. We are a collective of renegade museum lovers who are dedicated to engaging people in museums as real people. We have degrees in art history, museum studies, theater, etc. and have worked in a wide variety of museums. For corporations and businesses, we offer a fun team building activity at the best museums in the world.
