Avoid at all costs!!! The guide knew nothing about art and instead engaged in wild conspiracy theories about the Painting of Mary Magdalene, the Little mermaid and Disney taking over our children’s minds. Somehow, the Davinci Codes made an appearance too. I left the tour and would urge you to save time and money and don’t go.

We had a blast on this tour! Our guide Erich was interesting, hilarious & full of great information. I highly recommend this tour for those interested in the ‘sexy, sassy & scandalous’ back stories of the artists & their work.

the firm MUSEUM HACK ran this tour and the guide, Caroline, was nothing short than perfect. Knowledgable, kind, witty and she made the tour fun. 2 hours seemed like 2 minutes with the amount of energy and positive vibes she put into my visit to THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART in DC Thank you Caroline!
