Heart of the Art NYC is a new sort of museum touring business. What makes us unique?
We offer private, custom museum tours:
on your schedule, including at night when some museums are open late (say, Friday evening at 7 at the Whitney).
with people you want to spend time with (not a group of strangers).
on topics you find interesting (say, food or dogs in art). We'll even design a tour from scratch on a topic you select.
that cross collections. That means you can see objects in different departments on the same tour (say, dragons in art in both the Asian and Medieval collections at the Met).
of special exhibitions (say, Georgia O'Keefe: Living Modern at the Brooklyn Museum).
that visit parts of museums that aren't available on public tours (for instance, the exquisite period rooms at the Met).
with a free bottle of wine at the end.
that include museum admission.
at more than 20 museums in the City of New York and at 8 museums outside the city. See the full list.
that are always led by the inimitable Emily Sachar. No amateurs. No actors.
that allow you to ask questions -- as many or as few as you'd like. Never feel embarrassed by what you don't know or want to know.
paced at the speed you move -- never too slow or too fast.
that stop for water and bathroom breaks, if you need, or just a chance to people-watch.
The list of benefits goes on. We also offer scavenger hunt parties for kids and "kids of all ages." And we will tour at any New York City art museum that allows independent tours, which is just about every one!
