Museum of Sex - New York Attractions
Location: 233 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016
Yes, there is such a thing as a Museum of Sex, right here in NYC. In fact, some call it MoSex. Snigger all you want, but it’s a legitimate establishment dedicated to its mission “to preserve and present the history, evolution, and cultural significance of human sexuality.”
Sex. It’s a natural part of the human experience and yet, there is so much you may not know about sex and sexuality. For your companions that claim to know it all, we say, call their bluff and head over to one of the most unique NYC Attractions, the Museum of Sex at 233 Fifth Avenue – less than a 5-minute walk from the Manhattan Hotel Times Square – and learn something new.
Founded by Daniel Gluck in 2002, the Museum of Sex focuses on a variety of sexual preferences and subcultures through changing exhibitions, programs and publications.
Although it’s certainly been met with some criticism, in 2009, this New York Attraction doubled the square footage of its NY Store and added a floor and gallery. There’s also been the addition of an aphrodisiac-themed café/bar called Oralfix that claims to allow guests to explore aphrodisiacs from more than 3,000 years of human history – from oysters to ashwagandha.
Adult admission to this NYC Attraction is $17.50 + tax per person and can be purchased online, with discounts available for students and seniors with valid ID. Phone: 212.689.6337.
