Add this to my venues

The mission of the Museum of Sex is to preserve and present the history, evolution, and cultural significance of human sexuality. In its exhibitions, programs and publications, The Museum of Sex is committed to open discourse and exchange, and to bringing to the public the best in current scholarship.

The founder and executive director of the Museum of Sex, Daniel Gluck, conceived of an institution unlike any other – one wholly dedicated to the exploration of the history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality. In keeping with this mission, the museum advocates open discourse and strives to present to the public the best in current scholarship unhindered by self-censorship.

The Museum of Sex is committed to addressing a wide range of topics and material from different continents and cultures, time periods and media – from drawings and paintings to photographs, film and video to ancient artifacts and old and new technology.

Befitting the museum’s role as an educational sexual epicenter, it also provides a diverse program of events, including performances, lectures and seminars. Visitors also may visit the museum store, which offers an eclectic assortment of publications, home accents, clothing, and, of course, the best selection of sex toys available.
