This is not another stuffy museum tour. It’s a fun, irreverent, and slightly snarky take on one of America’s greatest art museums. It still has all the great stories, insight and knowledge of more serious tours, it’s all just a little, well, twisted. From schoolboy jokes and lazy artists to strap-on beards and a whole lot of painful jewelry, this tour will expose you to a side of art that people rarely get to see. And yes, there will be a quiz (with a prize!) at the end.
