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 is committed to addressing a wide range of topics, while simultaneously highlighting material and artifacts from different cultures, time periods and media. In addition to its changing exhibitions, the museum offers a sampling from more than 15,000 objects that form the permanent collection. The Museum of Sex is for mature audiences age 18+. Photography is permitted. Be sure not to miss the unique gift shop and current exhibits, including Known/Unknown: Private Obsessions and Hidden Desires in Outsider Art and Night Fever, a collection of 1970s NYC nightlife photos shown in a pop-up bar and disco.
