A rave about my Metropolitan Museum of Art tour with kids

"We could not have been happier with our personalized family tour [of the Metropolitan Museum] with Jared. He customized our route exactly according to the interests and whims of our two boys ages 13 and 9 and my husband and I.
I explained our sons enjoyed Greek Mythology, have a limited knowledge of Impressionists and Renaissance but we hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for art in general.
However, when they were enthralled with the Medieval art section, Jared was quick to adapt and equally as knowledgeable and engaging...
Jared was excellent at encouraging questions and leading where the interest lie. He provided interesting back stories on the artists themselves and the message of the art itself. Exactly what we had hoped for.
When the boys weren't any where near ready to leave after 2.5 hours, we considered the tour a smashing success."
What a great family that is!
The attitude that people bring to a tour is so important. I love the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History tours.
