It’s expanding, both geographically and in scope
Starting with New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, then on to The Museum of Natural History, Gray assembled his army of eager and eye-opening guides across multiple cities. The group has now conquered San Francisco, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles as well. Daily tours now regularly patrol the halls of dozens of elite institutions, breaking up the usual quiet groups of patrons with a small mob of selfie-taking, song-writing, mini-book report-writing groups of atypical museum converts.
The tours themselves have also expanded in scope -- in addition to their, uh, “traditional” tours, they now offer team-building tours, “Badass Bitches” tours with a feminist slant, and even “proposal tours” for the romantic who thinks that getting down on one knee in front of “Christina’s World” and 15 friends is the way to secure their partner’s love for eternity.
“We’ve done about 15-20 now, and I’m happy to say that everyone has said 'yes' so far,” says Alexis.
Whether they work with corporate groups, bachelorette parties, or the museums directly, the onus was and is always to make the exhibit come alive for their tourists. Museum Hack finds the part of the exhibit that anyone can relate to, and uses it as the cornerstone for the lesson.
