This Start-Up Is Revolutionizing Museums
Museum Hack will change how you visit them forever.
Did you grow up bored with museums too? Grown-ups talked about them like they were an adventure but they made them feel like history class for old people.

An entrepreneur and his team have transformed museums into exciting, vigorous, personalized adventures where you meet people, run around the museum, and, while you weren’t paying attention, still learn about art.
Their company is called Museum Hack. Its founder, Nick Gray, who didn’t like museums growing up either, created it out of a hobby. He gave irreverent, informative, fun, free tours to his friends describing his take on New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on weekends.
