The Wild and Weird Tour of the Met
Launching Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 4:00 PM

New York, NY – Shady Ladies tours will present The Wild and Weird Tour of the Met, an intriguing two-hour walking tour of the world famous museum, beginning on Saturday, February 23 at 4:00 PM. Tour-goers get to explore the obscure and hidden corners of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where there’s a world of strange, unusual and sometimes chilling artifacts hiding in plain sight.  Among the curios waiting to be discovered are:
  • The Met’s surprisingly large collection of corpses
  • The vases in which the ancient Egyptians stored mummified livers, entrails and lungs—and learn just how important those bits and pieces were for the afterlife
  • The hooks New Guinea’s headhunters hung their enemies’ skulls on
  • The Met’s only painting with two castrati
  • The cradle that rocks itself
The Wild and Weird Tour of the Met is available on February 23, March 9 and March 23 at 4:00 PM, with more dates to be announced. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is located at 1000 Fifth Avenue and East 82nd Street. The tour groups meet 15 minutes in advance of tour time at the feet of the statue of Pharaoh Amenhemet II in the Great Hall.  Tickets are $59 for adults, $49 for seniors and $39 for students and Metropolitan Museum of Art members and available at .

Shady Ladies Tours' art museum tours introduce art lovers to some of the sexiest and sauciest works of art in New York City.  Designed by Professor Andrew Lear, a leading scholar on the history of sexuality and one of the foremost experts on erotic Greek and Roman art, the tours reveal the scandalous back-stories behind paintings and sculptures in major New York City museums.  Tours include Nasty Women of the Metropolitan, Shady Ladies of the Metropolitan and Gay Secrets of the Metropolitan.  With his groundbreaking work on the history of art and his long experience as a scholar and teacher, Professor Lear is an ideal guide to give tour-goers an entirely new (and naughty) perspective on both classic and little-known pieces of art.  For more information, please visit .
