We were reluctant to pay so much for this trip but it turned out to be worth ever penny we spent. Our guide Matt showed us lockers, advised us on what to take, got us right in past All The LINES. More importantly he not only showed us the best works of art, but he told us marvelous historical stories behind each piece. He made it so interesting. He’s a natural storyteller and had an answer for every question. When your concluded we remained on our own and felt lost and dazed without him. If you love art and the stories, and techniques behind it I’d highly recommend….and I don’t spend money easily

Great! It was very well organized. Easy to find. Headsets were great. It moved along well. Very informative. We aren’t “museum people” but loved hearing all of the behind the scenes information and actually wanted a longer tour. Nice job. Highly recommend to take this tour. We browsed around on our own after it was done.

Guide was great and overall tour was worthwhile. We got expedited entrance and shown five significant pieces of art. The museum was super crowded so we very thankful for the navigation through the galleries. Would definitely recommend the hour and a half tour, especially to keep young adults and teenagers engaged!
