The Bay Area is a hotbed of culture, brilliant minds, and unique experiences. Sometimes the amount of experiences can be overwhelming, making it hard for us to choose! If you’re looking for an activity that is the perfect combination of high energy, education, and fun, check out Museum Hack. Museum Hack is a renegade museum tour company that hosts unique museum adventures at the de Young in San Francisco. Don’t let the tour part turn you off; these tours are designed to shake up the museum and help people explore art in a totally new light.
The de Young is often referred to as “San Francisco’s Attic” because of its namesake, Michael de Young, collected things that you wouldn’t normally think of as “museum material.” Think stuffed birds, spoons, clocks and blue Chinese porcelain. This is what makes the de Young such a fabulous place for museum tours intent on uncovering juicy gossip, exciting stories, and weird objects.
Museum Hack’s tours are not for the faint of heart or those who want to silently stand in front of art, contemplate the artist’s talent and perhaps keep to themselves. The tours are fast-paced, exciting, and packed with history and fun. It’s a museum tour that will have you laughing, taking selfies and finding the coolest stuff the de Young has to offer.
Museum Hack Tours at the de Young:
Un-Highlights Tour: The de Young is the most visited art museum west of the Mississippi and this tour is full of amazing world renown objects and art. A high-energy tour to keep you entertained and learning every step of the way.
Badass Bitches: Female artists on display in museums are few and far between. So, Museum Hack takes you to art created by women who are amazing. PLUS, you’ll hear some seriously cool stories of women in art and museum history.
