Museum Hacker

CEO of Museum Hack

Nick Gray thinks museums are f***ing awesome. So much so that he used to lead informal tours of the Met with his friends on the ‘un-highlights’ of the museum on art that wasn’t as popular but had really interesting back stories. Word quickly spread that Nick was making museums fun and he soon had a 1,000 person waiting list.


Museum Hack was born, and it isn’t your grandma’s museum tour. Operating as renegade (but completely legal) tours guides at museums in NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, and D.C., Museum Hack is the museum tour for people who don’t like museums. Their energetic, funny guides tell you the stories you won’t necessarily hear on the official tour, and show off some of the strangest, wildest, sexiest art hidden throughout the museums.

Hanging Plants


My friend Courtney originally installed these. Somehow I have kept them alive for 4 years now. One of them is less healthy than the others.

Mona Lisa wall painting


I saw something like this online and I asked my best friend’s sister to help make a large version of it. She customized it to fit my space and colors.

Huge Photo by Noah Kalina


This was the craziest, most complicated party I have ever thrown. It is a photograph from my buddy Zach’s bachelor party on a deserted island off the coast of Maine.

Brittany Schall Art


I love this intricately hand colored hair painting. The detail is great. It’s the first piece of art that I bought.

Wall of friend photographs


A lot of people have these, but I think mine is special because my friends are especially awesome. In order to get on the wall you have to come over to my apartment at least twice.

Bowl of juggling balls


I spend a lot of time on the phone and in front of a computer. Juggling is a nice way to step away and work on my hand eye coordination.

My mom collects nutcrackers. She has hundreds of them. My neighbors Ken and David gave me these and they remind me of home.
