Museum of Sex | NYC Attractions
The Mission of the Museum of Sex is to preserve and present the history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality. NYC Tours at the Museum of Sex include exhibitions, programs, and publications that strive to open discourse and exchange, and to bring the best in current scholarship to New York Visitors and the public.
When the Museum of Sex first emerged as a New York Attraction on New York City’s Fifth Avenue, on October 5, 2002, it was without precedent in New York Museums or in the museum world.
In the past 7 years the Museum of Sex has generated 16 exhibitions and 5 virtual installations, each keeping in line the New York City Museum’s mission of advocating open conversation surrounding sex and sexuality. The Museum of Sex also aims to present to New York City Visitors and locals the best in current knowledge of the subject, unhindered by self-censorship.
