This was a fun way to spend 2 hours exploring the Art Institute of Chicago with our four adult children. Definitely not a traditional tour, we viewed none of the popular or well known pieces of art. We did, however, view and discuss a wide...More

This was my first Museum Hack tour and I would say I was won over. I went into it a bit skeptical, thinking of the experience as "forced fun", but I thought the content was fascinating, the activities were varied, and the pace was quick...More

The art museum is a HUGE place. The point of this tour is to get you into every room, looking at and thinking about a selection of pieces. As our guide put it, it would take months for you to see every single piece of...More

For old hands at the museum or first timers looking for a fresh perspective, Museum Hacks provides a fast paced romp giving new life to an old institution. Collin has done his homework on some of the lesser appreciated but amazing artwork. A good tour...More

What a fantastic tour! Growing up around Chicago, I've been on many Art Institute tours over the years. This one was, hands-down, my favorite. Such a fun, fiesty, and and unique perspective and a rare glimpse into rooms and collections that I'd never before explored....More

sort of like listening to a 2-hour stand-up routine while glancing at some museum artifacts, taking cell-phone photographs, and hearing the guide's shtick. Occasionally his real affection for some of the artifacts shines through -- that's worthwhile. If you're not "afraid" of art, though, be...More
