Get a fun, irreverent experience of Washington DC’s National Gallery of Art on a 2-hour ‘museum hack’ tour with an amazing guide. Spot the highlights of the museum’s world-class collection, but keep it high energy and subversive to beat museum fatigue and art overload. This is an unconventional tour of the National Gallery of Art and is not recommended for participants under 18.
  • 2-hour guided tour of the National Gallery of Art
  • See a classic collection with an irreverent twist
  • Choose a small-group tour for a personal experience
  • Take in the best in a short, well-paced visit
Meet your professional guide at the National Gallery of Art, and dive head first into the remarkable collection. Skip the art jargon and history talks, and hear the stories that other museum guides don’t tell. Make your way to cultural and historic must-sees, but see exciting art that’s unforgettable for all kinds of reasons.

Listen to juicy gossip and backstories about the art, artists and museum world, and engage with the artwork in unexpected ways. Snap fabulous museum selfies, join in goofy group activities and enjoy an alternative perspective on the work you see, with pop-culture references and unusual framing.

Enjoy the upbeat pace of this tour as you explore some of the museum’s stunning collection: over 4,000 paintings, almost 3,000 sculptures and over 100,000 prints, drawings and photographs would take a week to explore on your own. Make your time at Washington DC’s National Gallery of Art as fast-paced, exciting and surprising as adventures should be—and learn why over 4 million people come to this museum every year.

Great tour with Molly. It is both fun and informative. Loved the mini-challenges we had throughout the tour. Will do this again in NYC. Highly recommend it.

We had a very enjoyable tour of the National Art gallery. Our guide Erich was engaging and well informed. We saw a lot of the gallery highlights and learned interesting insights behind the history of the collection. It was a very worthwhile tour.

We found this Hack tour of the National Gallery of Art very enjoyable. If you are looking for a tour that concentrates on a limited amount of art pieces but want to get the a full, comprehensive story about the piece, then this is the tour for you. Caroline, our guide, did an excellent job of storytelling and was very dramatic in her approach. She made the tour interactive with the participants which was very enjoyable. We would strongly recommend this tour!

Our tour guide, Hannah, was terrific! She texted me just prior to the tour to be sure we were set and knew where we were to meet her and asked me if we had any questions. When we arrived, she was there and seemed pleased to see us, made sure we were comfortable and then proceeded to take us on the tour. She was so prepared, extremely knowledgeable, had so many interesting facts at her fingertips and so very pleasant. We had the best tour and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to tour the art museum and have fun!

Our guide, Will, was fun and informative. The 2-hour tour went by quickly as we were having so much fun. We learned a lot about the museum and some of the art that we would have never learned on our own.

Will was engaging, well-informed and entertaining. I have gone on several museum tours at the Getty, Huntington and LACMA in Los Angeles and this was by far the most fun 2 and 1/2 hours. There were five of us in my group and that kind of personal attention is priceless!
