At the time of purchasing these tickets, I realized I accidentally bought tickets for both the MET and the Museum of Natural History. However, I am grateful that I did, as our tour guide Mark Venaglia gave hands down the best tour of both institutions. You could tell by the way that he talked about the paintings and the sculptures to the dinosaurs and dioramas that he is passionate and knowledgeable about these topics. He took so much care into interacting with our tour group, keeping us engaged and informing us of things that would not be known to the average museum attendee, but in a fun and insightful way. I cannot think of a better way this tour could have gone, Mark was 110% and more.

Jeff was great! Would recommend!

We went the week between Christmas and New Years. There was a VERY long line outside the building. We were able to skip it completely and enter in through the member entrance.

We were disappointed in the museum, NOT JEFF, for the amount of people allowed in the museum during a pandemic. Everyone had to be masked and vaccinated to enter, but there were some exhibits that were wall to wall people.

The museum is very large and can be very overwhelming! It was so wonderful to have someone guide you through and provide us with important information.

We saw both museums with the phenomenal Mark Venaglia. With such a personable, knowledgeable, and fun approach he taught us about art, the human experience through time and cultures, and some of the history of our world. You won’t regret this truly one of a kind experience.

(apologies late review) Really enjoyed the Met as our expert guide provided exquisite details behind every piece of art. The depth of understanding and appreciation we gained was priceless. Without our guide the Natural History Museum would have been unimpressive and boring. With him we could drill down on the most interesting exhibits along with the marvelous history skipped over on exhibit placards. Well worth the price and good exercise to boot!

We enjoyed our tour with Mark immensely! He was informative about the art, the museums and the city history. Group was small enough that we were able to move quickly and see a lot.
