Museum of Sex

233 5th Ave, New York City, New York, 10016

The Basics

The first of its kind in New York when it opened close to two decades ago, the Museum of Sex offers a boundary-pushing experience for adult visitors. Besides the works and objects on display (ranging from sexually explicit videos and imagery to historical ephemera and old-fashioned birth control devices), the museum also features virtual-reality installations and interactive novelties such as a breast-inspired bouncy castle. To save time at the entrance, book your ticket in advance.

Great experience!
It was nice to tour on the bus! The driver was kind! I liked that you could have tickets for the sights and the bus all in one pass!
