Museum of Sex

A $19.05 value - Included with your New York Explorer Pass!

The Museum of Sex takes you on an educational journey to the epicenter of human sexuality, around the world, from past to present. Advocating open discourse, the museum displays 15,000 artifacts and perspectives on sexuality from leading scholars, artists, and more.

The mission of the Museum of Sex is to preserve and present the history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality. With each new exhibition, the Museum of Sex is committed to addressing a wide range of once taboo topics, while simultaneously highlighting material and artifacts from different cultures, time periods and media. In a short time, the Museum of Sex has received attention from academic institutions, media outlets, and celebrities such as Howard Stern, Jay Leno and Chris Rock - positioning it within the realm of academia and pop culture alike.

Please do not bring children; this museum is for mature audiences only. Located in the former 19th century “Tenderloin” district, the Museum of Sex serves as the landmark of an area previously known for its bordellos, saloons, and dance halls. Aside from displaying artifacts from the sex industry that chronicle the history of sex, the museum also advocates safe-sex practices and informs about some of the sexually transmitted diseases that arise from unsafe sex.

No patrons under the age of 18 are allowed at the museum. Adult only attraction.

Fun if you have extra time
By Ally from New York, NY on

Comments about Smart Destinations Museum of Sex:

While this attraction lead to a lot of laughs, I wasn't that impressed. I expected more from the museum. The gift shop was the best part. I would only suggest going if you have extra time to kill.

Different...but a fun different!
By Grace H. Verified Reviewer from Scottsdale, AZ on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Museum of Sex:

I've been to this Museum twice now. The most recent trip seemed to be in the middle of some renovations. Was it still good? Sure. Was it better the last time? Definitely. Once it re-opens with some more exhibits (and once you get past the giggle factor), this is definitely a must-see in New York. Just leave the kids at home! :)
