I’ve lived where my entire life and my grandmother was a librarian and we spent much of my childhood exploring out of the way places so I really did think I had seen all there was to see in NYC. I was wrong. This membership has allowed me access to parts of NYC I had no idea existed, access to parts that otherwise I would never been able to see in my life, and the creative and amazing ways artists are using old spaces to repurpose historical landmarks without destroying their original landmark status. It’s incredible.Samantha Plesser
What Insiders Have to Say
Are you an Insider? Drop us a line!
Can I cancel my membership at any time?
Of course! In your member account, you can change, pause or cancel your membership at any time. You can also upgrade or downgrade your membership levels. If you’re temporarily leaving town, you can simply pause your membership and restart it when ready.
How do I get free admission to the museums partnered with Insiders?
Are there discounts for yearly memberships?
Yes! We offer our members one month free every year when they pay yearly. You can also switch between monthly and yearly plans at any time.
How do I book members-only tours and events?
Members-only tours have limited capacity and are booked on a first come, first served basis. Registration opens within two weeks of the tour date. The exact date and time when registration opens will be announced in the members-only newsletter. The “Book Now” button will only appear if you are logged in to the Untapped New York website once registration is open.
What if an event is sold out?
Don’t worry! Members events have limited capacity but we plan on repeating our most popular ones so you will have another opportunity to join us. There are also multiple other members-only events that you can join in each month
