Museum of Sex
It's not just about "the birds and the bees"


For some friskier fun in NYC, visit the Museum of Sex located on 5th Avenue near Madison Square Park. Founded by Daniel Gluck in 2002, the Museum of Sex has become a place for visitors to learn about the history and evolution of human sexuality in pop culture. The museum puts a new spin on sex with its mission to preserve and present the history of sex through exhibitions, publications, and programs. In collaboration with many organizations throughout the city, the museum presents new and exciting exhibits and programs dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of sex through fun and educative ways.

The permanent and temporary exhibits at the museum range from historical erotica to the sex lives of animals. Its archives include over 20,000 artifacts of works of art, photography, clothing and costumes, and technological inventions. The museum also houses a research library and a multimedia library with various films and recordings. Events at the museum are held in the lounge and they are as unique as the exhibits and artifacts.

The museum’s bounce room is no ordinary bouncy castle, but a great place to go for fun. And the museum’s shop is your one stop shop for all things sex including novelty toys and merchandise.

Since the museum is dedicated to sex, all patrons must be 18 or over to visit.
