We took the Chelsea galleries tour with Merrily. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We visited 7 galleries all different from one another and all very nice. Merrily offers the exact time needed for explanation to non-specialists. Highly recommended.

Merrily was very knowledgeable about the local art scene, but also warm and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed the art gallery tour. She managed to assemble 5-6 galleries with very different artists and it was all very exciting!

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
