Private Museum Tour Guide in New York City

I’m Danielle Oteri, a writer, art historian and the founder of Arthur Avenue Food Tours and Feast On History.

I believe that art inspires wonder and that being in the presence of a beautiful painting can be as awe-inspiring as the Grand Canyon. As such, my museum tours are crafted from stories, behind-the-scenes information from the art world, and a lot of good humor.

I was a Lecturer at the Met Cloisters for fifteen years and taught a survey of western art history at Seton Hall University.

My areas of specialty include ancient Greece and Rome, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. My NYC museum tours include:

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art

  • Met Cloisters

  • Hispanic Society of America (open for private tours of the Sorolla murals only during the museum’s renovation.)
