New tour company offers fun facts on Met’s art

NEW YORK (AP) — A new company is offering to make your visit to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art less daunting — and fun.

Museum Hack leads two-hour tours through the Fifth Avenue museum, offering details about different works of art not found on an official museum tour.

The Wall Street Journal (http://on.wsj.com/1doixOS ) says it focuses on overlooked works of art and intriguing and fun facts about more celebrated art.

The $39 interactive tour is not affiliated with the Met.

The company is operated by its founder Nick Gray and Mark Rosen, who holds a master’s in museology.
