Museum Hack is all about transforming the way people look at museums – and that includes companies, too! While a museum tour may not sound like a fun and exciting team building event, Museum Hack is well on its way to changing that.
Recently, several companies attended customized team building tours and couldn’t stop raving about the experience.
Team building is an important investment for every company. When you plan fun team activities, your people feel relaxed and committed. Team building is also a great way to reward your staff after a stressful project or deadline, and can be a great to to improve communication among team members. The idea is that when your employees play together, they learn how to solve problems with each other too!

One of the Museum Hack customers (who had a great time, but hey – we’re biased) shared this information. They had asked their Lead Guide what type of team building activities could be included on the tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for their company.
One of our favorite team building activities is to have the guests be the tour guides for a moment – in pairs. We encourage guests to pair up with someone they don’t know very well and then we send them off into a specific gallery to find something they connect with. It can be something they love, hate, feel weird about – anything. After selecting a piece, guests can research the piece using Google or the Met’s catalogue, or make up a story of what’s happening, or really whatever! Other less involved activity is playing Tableau Vivant (in which guests recreate a piece with their bodies).
This was just posted on their blog. The description of the video says:

Corporate team building events can often have the reverse effect if the participants are left feeling intentionally manipulated. But Museum Hack approaches team building from an entirely different angle. This is an innovative new company that offers rather creative tours of some of New York’s most impressive museums.
Rather than the usual stuffy and almost silent walking tours provided by typical tour guides, the leaders of Museum Hack offer a more unique alternative filled with sexy backstories of individual paintings and strange, behind-the-scenes behaviors of the individual painters, sculptors and artists of some of the world’s most magnificent masterpieces.
The team building tours of Museum Hack:
Encourages team communication and collaboration
Promotes critical thinking skills through creative interaction and debate
Expands a team’s visualization techniques through the varying opinions and interpretations of art
Museum Hack can schedule a day tour or nighttime tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art or of the Museum of Natural History, carefully customizing the individual excursion based on the specific qualities or intended team building strategies of the group. Their tour guides are funny, engaging, silly, and even downright musical at times, but the end result is always a happy team of satisfied customers who have bonded together to learn a new way at looking at any given challenge in a brand new light through the imaginative use of art.
